Elegoo Jupiter vs Phrozen Mega 8K

Last Updated: September 23rd, 2022

Large resin printers allow you to efficiently batch print and make larger items, but you better have a large budget as well. These printers carry similar, if not higher, XY resolutions to the smaller printers so prints will be just as beautiful and detailed. 

The Elegoo Jupiter is the more affordable option and the printer we would recommend, unless you absolutely need the extra build volume of the Phrozen Mega 8K. For an additional option, Anycubic's Photon M3 Max is a reasonable alternative.
