Assembly Points

Rotors, Gear Train Set and Casings can be assembled and adjusted separately.
Combustion Air Casing is slid to the outlet elbow assembly until aft end clears from the turbine case its bore at first. Then slide back to bore. Gluing is optional.
Standard Skill (such as Drilling, Tapping, Filing, Tightening, Painting and Gluing etc) is needed and perseverance too.
Total Net Print Time: Approx. 50 HR

(Estimated as case of PLA, 0.4mm Nozzle, 0.2mm Layer Height, 40% infill and No raft and support)
Note: When at actual print, each parameter may be adjusted.

I pepared the modified parts and some tools in ;
