Elegoo Saturn 8K – Compatible resin and 3d-printing settings

3D-printer manufacturer Elegoo has has a variety of resin 3D-printers available. In this article you can find compatible 3D-printing resin and parameters for the Elegoo Saturn 8K. Please note this is a different printer compared to the Elegoo Saturn 2, which also offers 8K resolution. Find Elegoo Saturn 2 resin 3D-printing parameters in the link. Although at the time of writing, only settings for Liqcreate Strong-X are available (thanks to our partners), we expect that other resins can work as well. a good starting point of these other resins are the Elegoo Saturn 2 settings of the Elegoo Saturn settings. For assistance dialing in the resin or other Liqcreate related questions, feel free to reach out to us at

Elegoo Saturn 2 8K vs Elegoo Saturn 8K.

You really have to look at the small letters and details to see the differences between these 3D-printers. To make it easier, we compiled a table below to compare the technical specifications. next to looks, there is one specification that is different between the Elegoo Saturn 2 8K and Elegoo Saturn 8K.

As you can see with the LED system used, the Elegoo 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 Elegoo Saturn 2 8K, the only differences that we can see are the looks of the machine and the new type of light source. this printer uses an arrey of 48 LED’s with fresnel lenses.
