Not expensive and 3-5 colors.
Are you printing multicolor at the same time? Or color change at layer height? Is this for a production run or just prototyping?

Lots of questions here.

I think the lowest budget you will get is to buy a decent chinese printer (Creality is decent enough), and pair it up with a pallette-2. Otherwise you need a printer that can feed multiple colors to one head area. Dual color is a little simpler, but others are doable.
