With multiple versions of its superb first effort, the Elegoo Mars, Elegoo solidified its position as one of the top dogs in affordable resin 3D printing. This straightforward design, which maintains Elegoo's primary, cost-effective printer as the workhorse we've always enjoyed, receives a welcome update with the Mars 2.
We enjoy the machine since it reliably produces prints with fine detail, but we also miss some of the convenience features seen on machines with comparable prices.
The Mars 2 costs around $230 at the time of writing, which is significantly less than the Mars 2 Pro. It competes head-to-head with products like the Creality LD-002H and Anycubic Photon Mono. After reviewing them all, we found that they are practically all similar in capability. The Mars 2 is most likely the printer for you if green is your favorite hue, though.
Ease of use
ELEGOO Mars 2 has a clear 2K monochrome LCD screen that makes printing quick and easy, taking only two seconds per layer. This version is three times shorter than the ELEGOO Mercury or ELEGOO Saturn versions.
In addition to having a remarkable print speed, the ELEGOO Mars 2 3D Printer can print consistently and guarantee sharpness for every print detail. The business switches to a modernized COB structured light source, which offers even illumination over the entire platform. Additionally, you will be dealing with a 2k monochrome LCD screen with significantly improved precision when using the ELEGOO Mars 2 3D Printer.
The machine’s body is made of a high-quality, durable aluminum alloy. As a result, you can use it for a long time and, with proper care, it will continue to print accurately.
The version does, however, include include the Chitubox slicing program. It is the most recent version from the company, therefore reducing 30 MB.stl format files just takes you around a minute. Comparatively, using a different model can take up to 10 minutes.
