I recently bought an Elegoo Mars 3D printer. Generally speaking, I'm quite happy with it. But, I don't care for the slicing software, Chitubox. Does the Elegoo Mars support other 3D file formats? I have tried *.stl files, but they don't seem to work with the factory firmware.

    $\begingroup$ Stl files are source models, not the sliced data for the printer. I'm not familiar with resin printer file formats. What does their proprietary slicer output? $\endgroup$ Feb 28, 2020 at 3:19

    $\begingroup$ Searching for it turns up that it's the same thing as .photon format and there are a number of open source tools for working with it. I would start with googling "photon slicer" and see what you find in the results. $\endgroup$ Feb 28, 2020 at 4:10

It also works with the .photon format of the Photon slicer.

It is only marginally better than ChituBox though.
