The Elegoo Mars is a remarkable 3D printer. Offering a simple, forgiving, and rewarding 3D printing experience at a combative price point, it achieves more than many of its contemporaries by doing less. Expect high-quality prints and little effort to get them. The print quality on the Elegoo Mars is incredible. This printer gives higher-priced competitors a run for their money. The X/Y resolution is 0.00185″ (0.047mm), so the quality on everything you print is already miles ahead of your standard FDM printer. Here’s a quick comparison of the same castle printed on an FDM printer next to one printed on the Mars.
Everything I printed on the Mars was so precise that no touchups were needed. Small details and tiny designs are very much visible and easily printed. The print quality definitely stands up to similar (albeit more expensive) printers on the market.
The Elegoo Mars UV Photocuring LCD 3D Printer is an excellent printer for the price. It looks nice, performs well, and doesn’t take up much space on a workbench. The quality you get out of this machine compared to similar printers is more than noteworthy.
