    I am a Mechanical Engineer and I want to get involved in 3D printing.I want to get a 3D printer and later on probably next year I want to start a prototyping business so if possible I want to get a printer that I don't have to replace right away. So what is the best way to choose my printer?

    Then as an ME you know you need to define your requirements.

    1) what materials do you need to use? Pla, abs, nylon, flex?
    2) what is your required build volume?
    3) what resolution would you find acceptable?

    Prepare your answers to this and we can go from there.

    Your fellow ME.
