    Need Some Help Buying The Right #D Printer.

    Hello all!

    I'm new to the world of 3D printing, so I need some suggestions on the best printer for my needs.
    I'm retired so speed isn't a concern, and I'm not in a hurry to buy the printer either. Here are my
    requirements for the type of 3D print jobs I will be doing.
    1st: It will need to be able to use ABS as well as other type of materials.
    2nd: I'll need to be able to switch nozzle sizes down to .5mm.
    3rd: I'm going to need a large build area (14" x 14" x 4" / 360mm x 360mm x 100mm).
    4th: Most of my scans are either STP or IGS files, so I will either need a printer that can use these
    file types or software that can translate them to a workable file for the printer.
    5th: I have about $1200 to spend (more than that and I'll have to be nice to the wife for several weeks)!

    This is not for a business, I'll be working in my garage and already have an exhaust system for other
    devices that make fumes. Please, I see a lot of unanswered question in this forum, but any help or
    suggestions you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you all,
