My view stands at what saves you time and money. I don’t see the need for purchasing a new 3D printer when you have another machine that can be possibly changed to what you want. This is especially if you’re not using the existing machine that you have. You can easily and most affordably convert it instead. Or is this not logic? Instead of wasting what you have you can make it more useful.
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
