About this deal

Just as they have previously done with the pro versions of their earlier Mars printers, this one adds an air purification module. This model was too large for this printer at the full size, so I chose Scale to fit, which shrank the model to around 46% of the original size. Though despite the added curves and arches making it more reminiscent of Space X's Dragon capsule, the area containing the touchscreen controls, power button, and USB port seems simpler and more prominent. Additionally, it comes with a set of paper filtering funnels, the power brick, and an air purifier module.

Each additional layer is fused on to the previous with a UV light as the platform rises out of the tank of liquid resin. As mentioned earlier, they are also working extremely hard to be the first to market with a non-toxic, easy to print and high quality resin. This means you can set a slow setting for one part of the Lift Speed and Retract Speed and a faster speed for the later part of the movement, where slow movement is less critical. Now that we have talked about the most important parts of the printers, let us talk about testing and dialling in the printer.The first thing the manual says is to attach the build plate, but that was impossible without lifting the platform. On my Mars 2 Pro, I had to lower my bottom exposure /burn in layers significantly to avoid having them stick insanely well to build plate. The Elegoo Mars 3 Pro is equipped with a replaceable 9H tempered glass screen protector that protects the monochrome display. This means that if you do happen to spill and harden some resin on the display, you at least are more likely to be successful in removing it without scratching the LCD. It seems like the Mars 3 is using the heat from the screen and the machine in a way to heat up the bed.

Unless you want to go with an 8K printer from Phrozen, Mars 3 will give you the best PPI and the same XY resolution as the other printers. I hate that there is no feature to just turn it on when it is needed, but that is sadly standard in the consumer resin printers.inches 4K mono LCD screen with a resolution of 4098*2560 and an XY resolution of 35μm, providing prints with fine details and high precision, which far surpasses FDM printers in quality and speed. Compared to its predecessor, the Elegoo Mars 3, the Mars 3 Pro has many new upgrades such as faster print speeds and improved stability.

This is a small’ish printer bed and it is unlikely that you can print big vehicles, monsters, large characters, big terrain or big models in one piece. For the prints in this review, I used a combination of some of Elegoo’s water washable resin as well as some thicker, low-odor resin that I had on hand.Resin LCD printers create the 3D parts by curing a single layer of resin onto the underside of a submerged build plate. Resin printers are ideal for highly detailed models as their layer heights are much smaller than a traditional FDM printer, to the point the layer lines are no longer visible under casual inspection. Consumables (activated carbon) are not warranted, as well as human damage, disassembly is not covered by the warranty. A copy of Chitubox Pro (usually 169 USD a year at the time of writing) is included with the printer. Overall, I think the market is settling on 4k being entry-level and 8k being premium for these smaller-class printers.
