Being the first IDEX 3D Printer powered by Snapmaker, J1 was released in November 2022. In order to further optimize your user experience with J1, we decided to release Snapmaker J1 Print Cooling Fan Upgrade Kit on June 15. The extra Print Cooling Fan at the back can further cool your prints efficiently and set a proper ambient temperature when printing at high speed on J1. Existing J1 owners can upgrade their printers based on their needs.
Together with the Upgrade Kit, we will also launch the second iteration of J1 –– Snapmaker J1s on June 15, which comes with a Print Cooling Fan at the back panel as standard as well as pre-installed doors and panels. If you plan to buy a J1 model and have the need for extra print cooling, you can choose either a J1 plus an Upgrade Kit or a J1s. Both options will do the job.
The main differences between J1 and J1s
The J1s is equipped with the extra Print Cooling Fan. You won't need to remove the top panel to print PLA.
In the package of J1s, we replace the white PLA with Breakaway Support for PLA so that you can try support printing right away.
We also pre-installed the doors and side panels for you, making it even easier to start right off.
1. Are J1 accessories compatible with J1s?
Though labeled as “for J1”, all existing J1 accessories, including Hot Ends of various sizes and Double-sided PEI Glass Plate, are compatible with J1s. A certain amount of Double-sided PEI Glass Plates included in the first batch of J1s are still labeled as “J1”. Please rest assured that the printer is a J1s model as long as its package includes the extra Print Cooling Fan.
2. I’m an existing J1 owner. How can I claim my discount code?
J1 customers who purchased J1 earlier than June 15 are eligible to receive a one-time discount of $25 OFF.
If you purchased your J1 from Kickstarter or Official Store, you will receive a discount code from us by June 15.
