    Great for beginners, quality is amazing, and printing details are actually amazing, The Elfin 3 Mini requires some leveling process at first so the bed is flat relative to the screen. Comes with an accessory kit very helpful to start printing right away.

    The 5.5-inch Monochrome illuminated by a UV light source provides me with fast and accurate printing. The included manual guide is useful during assembling, working, and potential troubleshooting problems. In addition, the printer supports different slicing software like NOVAMAKER, ChituBox, and Lychee multi-slicing. While cleaning the resin from the printer can be time-consuming, there is a level mark to prevent overflow and time-saving.

    I highly recommend this if you’re looking for an easy-to-use resin printer that does its job excellently. The platform has good adhesion and can be easily removed and calibrated. The printer is compatible with other resin printing software and functions well with its own slicer. The full HD matrix does not give the best details on models but the quality of the prints so far were all great and impressive.

    I’m highly impressed with this invention as the printer is the best in its class for size, money, and performance. It appears sleek, clean, and sturdy, stabilising it for the build process. The printer is built with an anti-ultraviolet yellow cover which offers constant lights throughout printing, plus it’s also tough and durable. Its design is excellent and quite an improvement compared to other resin printers within its price range. When using this resin printer, it delivered excellent printing results. The quality of my resin prints was tremendous and impressive. The printer is LCD-based, which brings out great-quality products. Nova3D opted for a sturdy metal frame for their mini resin printer to prevent further wobbling while printing. The printer’s print bed moves quickly up and down without additional vibrations. Its build area is more spacious compared to other similar resin printers, making it great for use. To my great surprise, the printer works on an independent Android-based system. It allows for smooth and stable performance and implements several different features. One of them is the capacity to begin printing remotely from a PC or even a smartphone.
