Elegoo sent me a Mars pro mono LCD MSLA resin 3d printer for my holiday gift guide. All opinions are my own.
If you have no idea what a 3D printer can do..I’ll try to briefly explain.
3D printing is a process that combines layers of material to create a 3D form. The instructions for how to shape the layers are stored in a digital file. I almost think of 3D printing as being roughly the opposite of sculpting. With sculpting, you carve away unwanted pieces. With 3D printing, you create an object by just adding the material exactly where you need it.
3D printers are used in different manufacturing businesses, but it’s also popular for people to enjoy 3d printing at home, as more of a creative hobby. For example, you could use a 3D printer to create practical objects for around your home, or to use as gifts. Anything from action figures, to planters, to a tablet holder, to jewelry, to drink coasters, to soap moulds.
A lot of people who are interested in designing, engineering and/or coding will find all sorts of ways to make good use of a 3D printer. They’re a great gift to consider for anyone with those interests. I think these could be an especially good gift for a teenager who may be interested in going into a programming or engineering related career.
Okay, now that we have the 3D printer basics out of the way, I want to talk about why the Elegoo Mars 2 Pro Mon LCD MSLA Resin 3D printer is a good choice to go with.
It’s a resin printer, not a filament printer. Resin printers are better for making really detailed pieces.
It prints fast, with less maintenance. It takes just 2 seconds per layer exposure to cure resin. It has a longer lifespan and stable performance when doing longterm printing which can produce better products and be a better value overall.
I offers incredible accuracy with a brand new light source structure.
It’s made very sturdy. The newly designed sandblasted build plate has a very strong adherence during printing which enables a consistent printing process.
I comes with a 1-year warrety on the whole printer, and a 6-month warranty on the 2k LCD.
It has built-in active carbon which absorbs the fume of the resin to reduce odors.
The Elegoo Pro Mars 2 printer is listed on many ‘best of’ 3D resin printers list, because it performs really well especially for it’s price. It ca compete with some printers that are far more expensive. This printer has over 2,500 reviews on Amazon and has a average star rating of 4.5 stars!
