Ford Engine Block (simplified) by sola_technical Jan 7, 2013

Description

For me, the original was choking Slic3r even after running it through Netfabb, so I simplified the mesh with Meshlab. 123k faces reduced to 86k, with a much smaller file.

I printed it in 7,5 h with 0.4 mm layer height. A short vimeo video with the result:

I printed this one at 1/4 scale on a Dimension 1200es SST. At that scale and on that machine it did have quite a bit of support material. No problems with the print though.

Thank you! My printer was choking on the original.
