With the update and iteration of the Saturn series of light-curing 3D printers, there should be quite a few friends who are not familiar with our products will be very curious: they are all in one series, and some of them are not much different in price and shape, how to be faster at a glance their differences help me decide to buy the model that suits me faster?No worries, this article will answer this question.

Saturn S is a 4K machine, which is an upgrade of Saturn. We have compared the differences between these two 4K machines before, please check this blog:ELEGOO Saturn S VS The Original Saturn.

Both Saturn 8K and Saturn 2 are 8K machines. As you can see with the LED system used, the Saturn 8K uses a matrix light source with 28 single LED’s. This technology is quite standard amongst the latest monochrome resin 3D-printers. With its new system the Saturn 2 8K, the main differences that we can see are the looks of the machine,Z Axis height and the new type of light source. this printer uses an arrey of 48 LED’s with fresnel lenses.

Based on the above considerations, if you can afford the price and prefer an 8K machine that prints more detailed models, maybe the extra 40mm Z-axis height of Saturn 2 will be your reason to give it priority.
