ELEGOO Saturn - MSLA 3D Printer

The ELEGOO Saturn is a higher end resin printer compared to the Mars series. The Mars 2 Pro is still pretty competitive though.

The first thing that you will notice about this printer is the size. The entire printer has a larger overall size. It also has a larger build volume. There are several other nice features included in this model as well.

Elegoo Saturn - Thirrd Party Review

Elegoo Saturn is another great 3D printer introduced and offered by the Chinese company. Similar to the smaller Mars models, it has some tremendous differences.

As we all know, when it comes to 3D printing, There are a few crucial features. They are build size, printing speed, resolution, and design. While the Mars series can offer you both great speed and good resolution. The compact design is not something that describes its bigger counterpart.

The Saturn model is a lot larger than the Mars 3d printers and has increased volume. The bigger printing volume is a great plus, but together with that, they increased the resolution and size of the LCD maskin. That makes the quality even better, thus adding more value to the machine.


Starting from the design, we can not miss the obvious. Elegoo Saturn has an almost identical design to the Mars model. The main differences are in the size, the mostly metal parts, and the USB port is again in a different spot. This time it’s located on the side of the printer.

Another great feature is that in this model. The company has added the pouring aid. That was a must-to-add feature, which many customers required because it makes the process easier.

As I said earlier, the machine has a bigger build than its smaller Mars counterparts. That means that most of the components are larger too. For example, the ELEGOO Saturn comes with a 280 x 240 mm footprint, which is a great thing. The machine has a 3.5-inch touchscreen. That enables you to operate smoothly and easily.

Another great thing is the vat. This time, they made this model vat removable from the top. There is no more need to try and slide it out and struggle with the process. With the Saturn 3D printer, you simply have to remove it from the top.

Probably one of the best features of this 3D printer is the monochrome screen. The 8.9-inch 4K screen has an astonishing resolution of 3840 x 2400 pixels, which is amazing. Especially when it comes to 3D printing. Especially if you haven’t paid 1k plus for the printer itself. That is also a big difference from the smaller Mars printers, as they had a resolution of only 2K.

While we are talking about the printing and quality features. It is critical to say. That the Z linear this time is actually doing its job. Elegoo paid attention to it and even improved it compared to the ones in the Mars series. They improved it by adding dual-linear rails. That increases the precision of the movement and can guide the building plate up and down the printing volume easier.


We can say that the Elegoo Saturn is an amazing machine. Compared to the Mars series, it is bigger. With a larger building comes a greater sense of responsibility. The Saturn 3D printer offers better quality prints with its 4K screen. This resolution and the larger LCD Make this model produce high-quality prints. The larger volume, compared to the Mars series. The design, as I said, is similar to Mars 3D printers, with some differences.

Overall, this machine offers quality, good printing speed, and, in the end, a larger volume. The latter, which- is lacking in many low-cost 3D printers, is a welcome addition in this case.

The only negative some may see is the price. Aside from being hard to get, the printer costs about $500 on the official website. In the end, this is a machine that is good for people with experience. It is not the best choice for people who are looking for a 3D printer on a budget. Not for those who are about to buy their first 3D printer. Thank you for taking the time to read this article and until the next one.
