ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro 6.1 inch monoscreen resin 3D printer review

The brand story of ELEGOO

ELE comes from the word electronic, which means open-source electronic. GOO comes from the word googol, meaning the 100th power of 10. The written form is 1 followed by 100 zeros, referring to the huge amount of structural models brought by 3D printers.

ELEGOO implies the combination of open-source electronics and structures that creates everything.

This brand vision/mission: Create the future, interpreted as “With the help of programming and 3D printing technology, we can create almost anything—ELEGOO provides geeks with the key to a new world.”

About ELEGOO

 

ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro

It provides 3D printer-related products, including MSLA 3D Printer, FDM 3D Printer, Washing and Curing Station, 3D Resin, and related printer accessories. They believe 3D printing technology is the key to innovating and creating a future with endless possibilities.

The basic information about the ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro 6.1 inch monoscreen resin 3D printer

 

ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro DETALS

ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro MSLA 3D Printer is ELEGOO first 6.08-inch LCD 3D Printer that uses monochrome LCD and COB UV light source. It has 50μm XY precision and high printing speed at 1.5-2s/layer. Extra building volume can meet most of your printing needs from industrial parts to board game miniatures.

It has 2K Monochrome LCD. ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro MSLA 3D Printer comes with a 6.08-inch Monochrome LCD that has 2K HD resolution. It is four times longer in lifespan and two times faster in printing speed than the regular RGB LCD 3D printers, which means higher printing efficiency, more stable performance, and less maintenance. It is equipped multi-language interface. The new operating system now supports 13 different languages: Chinese, English, Japanese, Dutch, Korean, French, German, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and Portuguese, which significantly facilitates worldwide users to use Mars 2 more conveniently. The ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro has built-in active carbon. Like Mars Pro, Mars 2 Pro keeps this function as well, so you can enjoy the same refreshing printing experience. Built-in activated carbon could absorb the fume of resin. Working together with the turbo cooling fan and silicone rubber seal, you can barely smell any irritant odor. What’s more, Mars 2 Pro is made of CNC machined aluminum from the build platform to resin vat. It has a very solid build quality and high durability like a reliable workhorse that always gets its work done. It adopts COB UV LED light source. Excellent heat dissipation performance, high luminous maintenance rate, uniform light emission, and no spots. COB light source has proved itself to be a fantastic upgrade that ensures each printing comes out perfectly. Last, Chitu Box has been a very helpful companion when you are using ELEGOO MSLA resin 3D printers from slicing .stl files to adding supports. With the latest 8-times anti-aliasing function, you can get a much smoother printing surface.

 

The using feeling about ELEGOO MARS2 PRO

 

Mars 2 Pro comes with a 6.08-inch monochrome LCD

Mars 2 Pro comes with a 6.08-inch monochrome LCD of 2K HD resolution and only takes 2 seconds per layer exposure to cure resin, which could significantly enhance your printing efficiency. Mono LCD has a much longer lifespan and stable performance during long-term printing, thus saving your cost. ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro has outstanding prints and ultra accuracy. Brand new light source structure provides more even UV light emission and working together with 2K mono LCD, the printing details and precision are greatly improved and the 3D printed models are fascinating. It is surely sturdy build quality. CNC machined aluminum body makes Mars 2 Pro a very formidable machine. A newly-designed sandblasted build plate has a much stronger adherence during printing and enables consistent printing success. Built-in active carbon could absorb the fume of resin and offer you a refreshing printing experience. It is surprising that it has a multi-language interface. Mars 2 Pro now supports 12 kinds of languages so customers across the world could operate the 3D printer more conveniently without barriers. The newly added 10 languages are Japanese, Dutch, Korean, French, German, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and Portuguese.

The differences between the new Mars 2 Pro and the Mars Pro

RESOLUTION

Despite using a 2K LCD as part of its curing engine, the Mars 2 Pro will have an ever-so-slightly lower resolution than its predecessor, the Mars Pro. The Mars 2 Pro, ELEGOO has a 1620 x 2560 pixel panel that, while technically with a finer resolution than the Mars Pro’s panel, is spread over a larger build area, reducing the pixel density and resulting in an XY resolution of 50 microns, to the Mars Pro’s 47 microns.

SPEED

The significant new feature of the Mars 2 Pro is the inclusion of a monochrome LCD for the masking part of the printing process. Allowing a greater intensity of UV light to pass through, triggering the reaction that causes photopolymer resin to solidify, faster, this particular component enables the printer to achieve quick layer cure times. Where non-mono printers might average out at six or so seconds, a mono-LCD-toting resin printer can achieve cure times as low as one to two seconds. Besides speed, monochrome LCDs have the benefit of longer lifespans, typically in the thousands of hours, rather than hundreds.

BUILD VOLUME

Users of the Mars 2 Pro will have 129 x ~80 x ~160 mm of build volume at their disposal, a slight increase on the Mars Pro. This also means that the Mars 2 Pro has a larger-than-average build volume, with it topping the likes of the Phrozen Sonic Mini 4K, and the Anycubic Photon S.

OPERATION

As with ELEGOO’s other resin printers, the Mars 2 Pro will use ChiTuBox firmware and software. And, as we’ve detailed in reviews of similar machines, this typically results in a simple and easy-to-use printer. The software’s automation tools do a decent job of taking the effort out of support generation and similar functions, but you can go manual and fine-tune prints as necessary, too.

DESIGN

The Mars 2 Pro is basically a Mars Pro with a new LCD. The build plate and plate leveling will be familiar to users of the company’s previous machines. The build also doesn’t offer any updates with a linear rail guiding the Z-axis movement and ELEGOO’s large capacity resin vat present.

The USB port is on the front face of the printer – a great convenience – and the inclusion of a carbon air filtration unit inside the print chamber carries forward to the Mars 2 Pro too.

When you purchase this product, you can get the following things, such as a resin tank, a build platform, and a metal scraper. A plastic scraper, a user instruction, some gloves, some funnel, a UL adapter, a U Disk(2 GB), backup screws, and a silicone rubber seal. All in all, this printer is really good, you can have a try. It is suitable for every user. That is a good choice.
