ELEGOO, a Chinese producer of desktop 3D printers, recently debuted the Centauri Carbon (‘CC’), its first CoreXY flagship, at RAPID + TCT in Los Angeles. Following the success of the Mars 3 and Mars 4 series, the company also introduced the latest additions to this popular lineup – the Mars 5 and Mars 5 Ultra.

“After extensive testing to ensure it’s 100% ready, we now decided to officially launch our first CoreXY printer,” said Chris Hong, Founder and CEO of ELEGOO. “The Centauri Carbon aims to set a new industry standard by being incredibly beginner-friendly and accessible to everyone. It also serves as a workhorse for hobbyists, artists, designers, students, teachers, small businesses, and anyone who loves to create and make things, unleashing their creativity with just a few clicks.”

Centauri Carbon

When the Centauri Carbon project was established in early 2023, the goal was to develop a true game-changer poised to revolutionize the industry. The Centauri Carbon is characterized by its space-gray metal design and fully enclosed frame – boasting smart AI camera capabilities and a sturdy integrated aluminum die-cast construction.

Unlike ELEGOO’s previous product lines, which are named after planets, the Centauri Carbon draws inspiration from Liu Cixin’s renowned science-fiction novel ‘The Three-Body Problem’. In the novel, a race of aliens known as Trisolarans inhabits a triple-star system based on Alpha Centauri, the closest star system to Earth.

Mars 5 Series

Boasting a speed of up to 150mm/h and Tilt Release Technology that allows for swift model removal from the release film – the printer enables fast printing without sacrificing detail, accuracy, or reliability.

A standout feature of the Mars 5 Ultra is its pioneering Resin Exposure Time Calibration. For the first time, users can fine-tune and optimize resin curing by selecting between 4, 6, or 8 equal segments. This unique capability allows simultaneous 3D printing experiments across different exposure time zones – enabling precise calibration for optimal print quality.

The Mars 5, on the other hand, serves as a more cost-effective version compared to the Mars 5 Ultra, without compromising on quality. Both the Mars 5 and the Mars 5 Ultra are designed for ease of use, smart functionality, and convenience. With self-check and automatic leveling features, users of all skill levels can start printing immediately without setup hassles.

The Mars 5 and Mars 5 Ultra are available now for 179 and $269 respectively.
