    Looking for printers that can print both sizes filament.

    I have an aging MakerFarm printer that's about 6-years old and a lot of 3mm filament. The ABS extruder housing is cracked so the printer is down. I'm trying to find a modern printer that can swap out extruders to that I can use up my 3mm and then move to 1.75mm filament extruder. The only printer I've found is the Lulzbot TAZ Workhorse which comes 3mm and offers a 1.75mm head kit as optional. This is the perfect scenario but it's a $3000+ printer and I was hoping to find other options to compare it to. I'm not necesarily looking for a build-it-yourself as was the MakerFarm. I just don't want to waste the 15 or so spools of 3mm filament I have. Once it's gone I'd like to buy the 1.75mm extruder for the printer, swap it and keep on going. Any ideas?

    Thanks for that info. I've purchased Bambu P1S and am thrilled with it. I donated my Makerfarm and a ton of 3mm filament to a High School. Everyone it happy how.
