I know that title is bit consuming but its hard to describe these machines.
For a few years now I have heard about multi-purpose machines that can function as CNC, 3D printers, or engravers. This being achieved with a swappable machine head depending on what you need at the time.
These machines don’t seem to get the attention that the dedicated 3D printers, CNC or engravers get when released. Having no experience with machines of this type I can’t really comment on why this is but maybe a community member has used them before.
I can understand the benefits and drawbacks of such a machine. Having 3 options to choose from without having dedicated machines can be incredibly convenient in terms of space. It is also likely more affordable, however this would depend on the type of 3-in-1 purchased. The obvious drawback to 3-in-1 machines is that the convenience must surely mean that compromises have been made in certain areas. I would guess that upgrades are incredibly limited for these machines. Again these thoughts are mostly based on assumptions.
So I am curious if any community members have had experience with a 3-in-1 machine or would be interest in getting one if they had the chance.
As I have limited space and am considering the possibility of getting a 3-in-1 I am open to any brand or model recommendations you may have.
