    So I have become fascinated with this lately and think I have found my new project..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAkzb1nXzwUI just have to have this sitting atop my toolbox at my job working on the Corvettes. So here is the engine block loaded in Repetier..While the above picture is of repetier host I have switched to Prusa Slicer 2.0. This is the new Slic3r and that is what I was using in repetier anyways and I don't really print from usb anymore. And I have nothing but good things to say about Prusa Slicer 2.0. Here is my Black Widow about half way done printing the engine block. ~22hrs in so far..The LS engine family are all aluminum engines. So I am printing the block and heads with silk silver PLA so it has a shine to it.

    So the engine block took over 40 hours to print. I am happy my printer with all of its mods printed this out without a problem..



    Next I need to print the cylinder heads.

    With the exception of the exhaust headers The Black widow has printed all of this..The piston on the scale was done for humor. Not needed for this application.

    Well I got this far..



    And I just cant continue on with the engine yet. The stand needs to be one color. The raw aluminum is just wrong. I mean glow in the dark yellow isn't exactly right but solid colors are what most engine stands are. So I have to draw up and print out some covers for the aluminum so the whole frame will glow in the dark.
