*Printing with supports is advised for Wax Castable resin on the Elegoo Mars 2 and the Elegoo Mars 2 pro. This way the resin has a stronger adhesion to the build plate of the Elegoo Mars 2 and Elegoo Mars 2 pro.

** Tough-X, Flexible-X and Premium flex require heavy supports, Elastomer-X requires extra heavy supports.
