I did a full scale jet engine model and the fan inlet was about 4ft in
diameter took roughly 1900 hours of SLA time and weighed in well over

( They split up large auto part files into smaller
"pieces" and make the separate pieces on an SLA. Then they recombine and
finish them for presentation by their customers.

                        Does anyone have any sample 3D drawings of large
parts? These parts might have been split up into smaller parts so they could
be made in an RP-system.
                        Basically I am looking for some simple stl-files
with internal contours.
