Assembly Points
- Standard Skill (such as Drilling, Tapping, Filing, Tightening, Painting and Gluing etc) is needed and perseverance too.
- If you want to clarify the air flow passage, the back side surfaces are painted before assembly.(See Photos)

Total Net Print Time: Approx. 40HR
- (Estimated as case of PLA, 0.4mm Nozzle, 0.2mm Layer Height, 40% infill and No raft and support)
Especially, Input-Housing101ws.stl needs about 10 hours to print.
Note: When at actual print, each parameter may be adjusted by your experience.

I do hope your success!!

Raft, Support, Layer Height, Infill: Depending on your experience.
But the parts having blade/vane, small shaft and thin portion: 100% infill is recommended.
My models were printed by "idbox" using with 0.4 nozzle, 1.75 PLA.
