I am always keeping an eye out for cool 3D models to recommend for 3D printing. This one is no less than amazing at the amount of time and detail put into this full 3D model assembly.

Working model of a Chevy Camaro LS3 V8 engine.
Over 200 hours of printing!!! Engine block alone was 72 hours.
Modeled from cad files, pictures, specs, and service diagrams of the engine. I did not have the actual engine for this one.
It assembles just like the real thing!!!



This thing is cool as it gets. Fully working model with hardware. Over 200 hours of print time involved.  To see this thing in motion check out the following video. Includes a sped up time lapse of the entire assembly of the engine:

Fully working LS3 model. Everything was 3d printed except for the bearings and fasteners. Some parts were modeled from CAD files floating around the internet while others were modeled from pictures, repair manuals, and diagrams.

Very nice work…

If you feel this is too much print time for you take a look at the following, one of the available remixes. Scaled down to smaller than a can of soda http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1996991:


Now go out and do some 3D printing!
