From Mach5ive, a bumper bundle of an Elegoo Mars 2 Mono Printer, Mach5ive Printer Cover and their brand new all improved Screen Protector bundle. Most resin 3D printers do not have screen protection to protect you from a FEP leak, resin spills or damage from a dropped build plate. The Mach5ive Screen Saver  will help to protect your printer screen and internals from resin spills.  Pre-Orders available now.

From Ameralabs, a fantastic selection of their popular resins formulated specifically for printing miniatures. We recently reviewed both the AMD-3 LED Resin as well as the newly formulated TGM-7 TableTop Gaming Resin. The resin produces exceptional level of detail on even the smallest prints with additional strength and flexibility properties that make this resin ideal for a tabletop gaming session.

From MyMiniFactory, a 3 month MMF+ subscription, providing access to incredible offers and exclusive savings on STL files from top designers, 3D printers, 3D printing materials and 10% discount on all files!

From Redgrass Games, the supreme Studio XL Wet Palette and the ever popular Miniature Holder. Check out the recently launched Kickstarter where there is still time to pledge and support the release of Wet Pallete 2, new and improved for 2021.

From Scale75USA, a great selection of paint sets including the Metal n Alchemy Copper set, the Scale Color Flesh Set, the Fantasy & Games Steam and Puck set and the Scale Artist Basic Colors set. As well as these great prizes everyone can grab a 15% discount at the Scale75USA.com store by applying our exclusive MPPC15 contest discount code which is valid from May 29th to Jun 12th.

From Wham Bam Systems, the original and the best Slap Mat. Made of pure 100% first-grade silicone which will not be harmed by printer resins. Stop working with resin on cardboard and paper towels. Use to protect your work surface. Slap Mat is also great as a general craft mat, protecting your work surface from gluing, body putty, or painting.
