Elegoo Saturn is a wonderful SLA 3D printer. However, during operation, it is quite loud (54 dB). This is mainly due to the cheap fans. When you replace them, you can easily the noise from 54 dB to 40 dB. However, Elegoo uses 24 V fans for which there is no (cheap) silent replacement. Therefore, I designed this little module that allows you to connect any standard 12V fan to Saturn. Inluding the silent ones (Zephir, Noctua). No extra tools, no soldering are required for installation. Just plug and enjoy the silence...
Read more details about it in my personal blog post.
The installation is pretty simple and can be completed in less than 10 minutes. You will only need the Allen keys that came with your printers. First, remove resin vat and build plate. Also, unplug your printer from the power adapter.
Then, unscrew the side cover (unplug your flash drive first):
Peel the cover from the base plate - it is secured by tape. You should see a ribbon cable from the LCD. Disconnect it by turning the black key up (there is a notch for your fingernail in the middle) and then sliding it out.
Now unscrew the screws on the base plate of the printer.
Prepare a box (e.g. Elegoo resin box) on top of which you can lay the top of the printer. Then lift the base plate. And lay it down. Be careful - there are still wires for the stepper motor and the end-stop switch connected!
Disconnect the old fans from the mother board:
Unscrew the original fans:
Take your Silencer modules and connect them to the replacement fans.
Screw the new fans in and connect them to the motherboard. Be aware of the polarity (the connector has an alignment pin):
Mount the silent fans and use the attached cable tie to tidy up the cables. Now put the base plate back and tighten the screws. Connect the LCD ribbon cable back into the connector and turn the black key on the connector down to secure it. Install the side cover.
You are now ready to plug your Saturn and listen - there's much less noise! Enjoy.
The package contains:
This module was tested with the pre-order unit of Elegoo Saturn and SilentiumPC Zephyr 50 fans. However, it is compatible with any 12V fan featuring a PC connector (most fans on the market).
Although Elegoo is known for being user supportive (they ship tools to disassemble the printers with the printer) and instruct you to replace the component by yourself, it is possible that installing this modification might void your warranty as this module was not designed by Elegoo. The seller is not liable for any loss, damage, or injury of any kind arising from any use of this module.
