1. Turning Gamers Into Creators
ELEGOO’s printers make it possible for model designers, collectible fans, and dungeon masters to create unique pieces and materialize them in physical form. Using ELEGOO Printers, you’ll be able to create your own versions of your favorite game pieces, create a one-of-a-kind gift for a loved one, or build your own army of detailed models. Instead of purchasing pricey figurines for your next game night, print them out yourself, like YouTuber Once in a Six Side, who used their Saturn 2 to print out a Warhammer 40K Reaver-class Titan, or 3D printing expert Uncle Jessy who built a studio with latest ELEGOO printers. These FDM or resin printers give beginners or veterans the tools they need to get started on a journey into 3D printing.
2. New FDM 3D Printers: Neptune 4 Pro
ELEGOO’s new lineup includes two FDM printers: the Neptune 4 and Neptune 4 Pro. These Fused Deposition Modeling printers address a few long-standing pain points for hobbyists and professionals alike. Both devices are easy to set up and operate. The Neptune 4 Pro is also equipped with Klipper firmware, which provides improved computing power and helps greatly boost the printing speed up to 500 mm per second*, 10-times faster than most desktop FDM printers available on the market.

3. New Resin 3D Printers: Saturn 3 Ultra
Even more upgrades come to ELEGOO’s LCD 3D printers: the Saturn 3 and Saturn 3 Ultra. The Saturn series gives 3D printing enthusiasts improved results by upgrading the previous model’s monochrome LCD screen from 8K to a revolutionary 12K screen with a 11520x5120 resolution. If powered by ELEGOO Fast Standard Resin, the printing speed of Saturn 3 Ultra can reach up to 150mm per hour, 3-times faster compared with previous Saturn products. The SATURN series was named the Gold Winner at the 2023 Globee® Disruptor Awards in the 3D printing and augmented reality category.
4. The Mars 3 and Mars 4 Ultra
ELEGOO’s most popular series - The Mars 3 and Mars 4 Ultra offers entry-level pricing without compromising performance, at a smaller build volume of 153.36 (L)*77.76 (W)*165 (H)mm3 that is more friendly for first-time users. Both models provide a 9K screen and are compatible with ELEGOO’s next-gen USB air purifiers. All these devices also support multiple slicing software without restriction through the use of ELEGOO’s self-developed open-source GOO slicing format, a one-click solution to print your fantasy world.
