ELEGOO Mars 3 Resin 3D Printer Review

Resin 3D printing — often called LCD printing or MSLA printing


ELEGOO Mars3 3d printer with all accerioies

Resin 3D printing — often called LCD printing or MSLA printing — is the latest technology to reduce the price to the point where the hobbyist can afford to play. If you are looking to buy your first resin printer, then we suggest the ElEGOO Mars 3 Pro. The Mars 3 is a great 3D printer for a fantastic price.

ElEGOO has been at the forefront of the MSLA revolution, and the Mars series is its flagbearer, now in its third iteration. If it were an FDM printer, the 90mm x 143mm x 175mm print area would be laughed out of town, but because it is resin, the volume is respectable, and with its 4K resolution and monochrome panel, it has pinpoint details as small as 35 microns and can cure layers as low as 1.5 seconds each!

Whilst the price has crept up a bit since the first Elegoo Mars, every upgrade is worth it, with the bigger screen, higher resolution, bigger build volume, and lower layer times, as well as a more uniform UV LED. I still struggle to believe that a printer that costs so little can produce such quality prints. Even at 0.05, the tallest layer height you’ll want to use, the layer lines are all but invisible to the naked eye. The models are so crisp, so smooth, that they could easily be mistaken for injection-molded products, rather than the 3D-printed models they are.

Because ElEGOO is so active in the 3D printing community, and its printers are so reliable and relatively cheap, there is a massive community around the Mars series. The community has embraced the machine and set about making it even better with printable parts to enhance your experience. One of my favorite additions is the angled build plate holder, allowing you to tilt the build plate 45 degrees after a print has finished allowing the excess resin to slide off.

Some special aspects about the Mars 3 Resin 3D Printer which you should know. It equips a monochrome 4K screen, COB light source, release film 2.0, fast print speed, smart cooling fan, and ultra-precision. Now I will introduce them one by one.

Mars 3 is ELEGOO’s first ultra-4k high-precision, compacted-size desktop LCD resin 3D printer. It uses a 6.6-inch ultra-4K high-resolution monochrome LCD, an upgraded COB UV light source structure, and a new release film 2.0 for printing.

The ELEGOO Mars 3 Resin 3D printer has an Ultra 4K 6.6-inch monochrome LCD with a resolution of 4098*2560. Compared with ordinary 2K LCD 3D printers, its printing volume is 37% higher than Mars 2, XY accuracy is up to 35 microns, 30% higher than Mars 2 series, higher printing efficiency, more stable performance, and less maintenance.

The Mars 3 Resin 3D Printer Upgrades the light source structure. 36 highly integrated LED lights with a newly designed free-form surface lens, the light uniformity exceeds 90%, bringing more precise printing dimensional accuracy.

This printer adopts the release film 2.0. The lower release tension protects the small supports from being broken, the completeness of the printed model details is greatly improved, and the printing rate is greatly improved.

In addition, the Mars 3 Resin 3D Printer equips heat dissipation structure. It is the first time to adopt a copper tube heat dissipation structure in ELEGOO resin 3D printer, which greatly optimizes the heat dissipation performance and reduces light decay. With 6000 hours of continuous printing, the light decay is less than 5%, which extends the lifespan of the 3D printer.

A one-year free trial of the Chitibubox Pro slicer is included, which is worth 169 USD. From the automatic support algorithm to the upgrade of the model repair tool, Chitubox Pro helps better output the model and allows you to realize the unlimited potential of 3D printing.

When you purchase this product, you can get these accessories such as a resin tank, a build platform, a scrapper, a user instruction, a mask, gloves, a funnel, an adapter, a U Disk, backup screws, and tool kits.


Summary of ELEGOO Mars 3D Printer


The ELEGOO Mars 3 is a fantastic printer for just about anyone. Are you just starting? Mars is simple to learn, with very few moving parts to go wrong. Maybe you are looking to start a business. The Mars is cheap enough that you could buy several and make yourself a print farm. The possibilities are endless with ELEGOO Mars.
