Elegoo Mars 3D Printer

Elegoo_MarsHave been watching and reading about the 3D Printer, Elegoo Mars, for about half a year.  A few weeks ago learned about Elegoo’s washable resin.  With the regular resin you need to clean your prints with alcohol (IPA).  With this other stuff you just need warm water.  It’s still toxic so you can’t put in down the drain until you filter the water.  Think it’s still better than using IPA.  Couldn’t find the resin on Amazon.ca but found some on .com.  They had two bottles left so ordered them.  Next I ordered the printer off .ca which they had on for 20% off.  About a week later they were at the post office.

[Update] Have everything I need to start printing.  The machine setup is very easy.  Did the test print and it turned out awesome.  After that printed one more thing. While waiting for the print to come in the mail.  Downloaded the program that works with the printer called ChiTuBox.  This is where you put your 3D models in to add supports and slice the file.  Then that file goes on an USB drive that the printer reads.  I got three other files ready to go.  Will talk about the program more in another post.
