Resin 3D printers are popular products, especially as the COVID crisis has shown all the ingenuity they are capable of! Elegoo, the Chinese brand specializing in this field, offers this year a brand new revolutionary 3D printer, the successor to the Saturne 2 4K, the Saturne 2 8K, just that! We are taking stock of what awaits us with this technological jewel that will be available at the end of December 2022!
What’s New in the Elegoo Saturn 2 8K
More detailed, more accurate, the Saturne 2 8K is the must-have for 3D printing. If you want to create very fine, ultra-detailed figurines and decorations that do not require retouching, then this 3D printer should satisfy you completely. After the crowdfunding launch of the Elegoo Jupiter, the largest 3D printer for individuals with 6K resolution, Elegoo continues its rise with a brand new model that is even more powerful, the Saturn 2 8K in photopolymerization, a 10-inch printer. which will be officially announced in May this year and which you can afford in December 2022!
Design and stability
At Elegoo we don’t try to revolutionize the design side and it shows because we don’t go off the beaten track. However, the Elegoo is more imposing than the brand’s more standard resin 3D printers and is intended to be stable and resistant. We will find the faithful resin cover, with the design and colors specific to the brand, as well as a very nice machine, but which keeps the look we expect from it, in any case, we can not especially revolutionize the genus. Designed for the most advanced and demanding users, the Elegoo Saturne 2 8K will be powerful and solid on its base, a mandatory condition to be able to sit at the top next to the biggest brands.
Size level, like we said, we’re on to something solid. The size of the printer will be 306 x 273 x 567 mm, a beautiful beast!
Screen and Print Quality
Released in late December, the Elegoo Saturn 2 8K offers an 8K display that allows maximum reproduction of the precise details of the model you are about to print. The 10-inch 8K super high-resolution LED panel is an engineering feat that will provide a resolution of 7680 × 4320 with an accuracy of 28.5 m (as a reminder, the Mars 3 Ultra 4K offers a resolution of 35 µm, which is already the guarantee of an exceptional result).
With this 10 inch 8K LED screen you can print both small and larger models while retaining maximum details, a feature that you mainly find on smaller printers. Below this screen you will find a Fresnel lens, known for its remarkable optical quality and high light transmission to also distribute UV light very evenly. The Elegoo Saturne 2 8K also promises easy maintenance and simplified use. Note that the 8K LCD screen is protected by a powerful 9H tempered glass screen, clearly scratch resistant and will prevent damage to the precious screen of the Saturn 2 8K!
The Saturne 2 8K 3D printer offers quite a respectable print size, not to say more than sufficient for everyday use in the context of leisure but also in a more professional context. Equipped with a 3.5 inch touchscreen, it therefore offers a print size of 218.88 * 123.12 * 250 mm for a resolution of 7680 * 4320 and a pixel of 28 m.
With the Saturne 2 8K you can indulge yourself and create resin objects of a very high graphic quality, with an impeccable rendering and a considerable size. For larger objects you can of course make them in several pieces and put them together later!
