Bought the Elegoo in late July, and it has performed flawlessly (unlike the operator!); but it's time to look for something a little bigger. I seem to be bucking the 114 x 65 mm build platform size restriction more and more lately. The later Mars 2 Pro has a slightly larger build platform at 129 x 80 mm ; some 39% more area. The "2" is also apparently about twice as fast printing. Nice but that platform size may get tight also. Price is not bad at $399 compared to $329 for the Mars Pro. It also looks like the "2" would use the same size resin vats as the Pro, which would be handy, since I bought 2 spares. All the other nice features of the Mars Pro look the same, as does the overall size of the unit.
For a quantum leap in platform size I found something called the Kelant S400. It has a build platform of 192 x 120 mm which is over 3 times the area of the Mars Pro. It looks like a nice rig, but pricey at $1300 on ebay. Print speed is shown as 30mm/hr; about 1.2 inches; not bad. Anyone got any experience with these guys at all; are they any good? A cheaper way to go of course would be a filament printer, but you take a hit on fine detail resolution compared to a resin printer.
Any thoughts out there?
