ELEGOO Mars 2 Pro Resin 3D Printer 2022 REVIEW — MacSources

6 min readApr 7, 2022

This resin 3D printer is easy to use and budget-friendly.

3D printing is the future. This is what we have heard for several years now. We have seen silly representations in different mainstream mediums, but no Back to the Future-type results. I like most people dipped my foot into the 3D printing world with a filament-type printer. The whole idea of resin-based printing seemed a bit overwhelming.

After a year or so of modding and fiddling with my filament printers (Yes multiple, it is a very addictive hobby) I decided to venture out into the unknown world of resin. There are so many different brands and options out there, that it can be chaotic just settling on one to purchase. That’s the first ordeal. The second is how easy is it going to be to use. The third is how big of a build surface compared to the price and overall features are included in the printer. I landed on Elegoo’s Mars 2 Pro Resin 3D Printer.


The Mars 2 Pro Resin 3D Printer is ELEGOO’s first 6.08-inch LCD (features 2K resolution) 3D printer that uses a monochrome LCD and COB UV light source. It features 50μm XY precision and high printing speeds (1.5–2s/layer). The new operating system supports 13 different languages including Chinese, English, Japanese, Dutch, Korean, French, German, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and Portuguese.

The Mars 2 Pro Resin 3D Printer features built-in active carbon just like its predecessor, the Mars Pro. Active carbon helps to absorb resin fumes and works together with the turbo cooling fan and the silicone rubber seal so there are barely any fumes present when you print. The unit is made with CNC machined aluminum and the build quality is designed to be like a reliable workhorse.

The COB UV light source provides a high luminous maintenance rate, uniform light emission, and no spots. It also has excellent heat dissipation performance. The Chitu Box Slicer is another helpful upgrade that ELEGOO has made to the Mars 2 Resin 3D Printer. With the latest 8-times anti-aliasing function, users can get a much smoother printing surface. ELEGOO provides a 1-year warranty on the entire resin 3D printer and a 6-month warranty for the 2K LCD (FEP film is excluded).

Kit Includes:

  • Resin Tank
  • Build Platform
  • Metal Scraper
