The Ender 3 released in 2018 is probably the most popular 3D printer of the moment, but it is getting old compared to the new machines of the competitors.

After the success of the Mars and the Mars pro, Elegoo announced at the beginning of the year the release of a larger model: the Saturn, announced at the maximum price of 600 dollars.
