Other Products We Considered

An affordable printer with the quality and performance of a professional machine. It's an excellent 3D printer for both resin printing newbies and enthusiasts alike. High quality prints.
- Tom's Hardware
Thanks to its unique steel ball design, you only need the Z-axis to return to zero, then lock the leveling screw to start printing. Its 3.5 inch touchscreen lets you preview the model straight from the SD card.
- Techeblog
In addition to the gasket, the Mars Pro also adds a new filter which should help to better contain the noxious fumes.
- ZD Net
This printer delivers premium prints without a premium price tag. Marketed at hobbyists, the Mars is easily accessible for both long-time 3D printing enthusiasts and first-time users looking to dip their toes into the world of resin printing.
- 3D Printing Industry
A budget-friendly UV LCD 3D printer that is user-friendly and offers ceaseless ingenuity. The printer only takes five minutes to assemble and begin printing. For those afraid of the initial set up, which is challenging with some other models, the ELEGOO is a great option. The ease of set up and initial printing classifies it as a ‘plug-and-play’ 3D printer.

What experts didn't like

Loud beeping throughout beginning and end of printing process.
- Tom's Hardware
Unfortunately, I found the gasket's fit and finish isn't perfect.
- ZD Net
With a modest but typical printing volume of 120x68x155 mm, the Mars is limited in its output to jewellery, tabletop miniatures, pop-culture paraphernalia and small mechanical prototypes.
- 3D Printing Industry
Slightly messy. Can produce an odor. Not the fastest print time.
