Previously the confine of professionals and hobbyists with deep pockets, resin-based 3D printing is the bold new frontier for the desktop 3D printing market. Anycubic found mass appeal with its Photon 3D printer some years ago, and today we’re reaping the reward of competitors trying to pry the demand away with their own offerings.

Generally priced well below $1,000, both beginners and experts alike can benefit from such budget machines, with high-resolution 3D printing now both affordable and prolific.

Initially revealed in 2017, the Elegoo Mars marked yet another exciting addition to this ever-growing collection of budget resin 3D printers. However, it took the company some time to prepare this sub-$400 LCD 3D printer for the consumer market.

Even as we write this, only sporadic batches make it to retailer’s digital shelves at unbelievably low prices, selling out within moments. Artificial scarcity to give the illusion of demand? Perhaps. But, from our experiences with the Elegoo Mars, any demand is entirely deserved. This thing is damn good.
