print open source engine model
#1
I have an open source engine model that i would like printed. As seen hereĀ https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1643878

Looking for a quote for parts/labor to decide on whether or not to move ahead

WOW!

That's going to be extremely challenging to print.
Some parts are hollow curved tubes, so you'll need to use dissolvable supports to make them.

There are more than forty different types of parts and each one will need to be evaluated on how to slice and print them to get good results.
There are 125 parts required to build the model.

It will likely take hundreds of hours print-time and many tens of hours design/evaluation time.

I don't have a printer capable of doing the job well enough, but I'm thinking something like $2,000 to $3,000.
