Jet Engine by Xena

hay all

so i thought ide create a build log this time, it will be my first attempt at one of these mainly because there isnt any instructions on this build, so i thought it might help some people out! p.s apologizes for my piss poor grammar and spelling.
i have a bit of experience in larger builds but not in making build logs here is what ive done so far

so first issue i have is my work only has the UP! mini but never fear our sister store in MT isa has the plus! so i had to our source the only part witch can not be printed on the mini (Front_fan_blades.stl) but all other parts can be printed on the mini.

second issue i came across was for some reason i was have the parts lifting and the fan blades where contacting the extrudeder head or no support materiel was getting printed under some parts are all. i did preheat the panal and i made sure the platform was calibrated but still had the issue.

so i made a phone call and was told i had to change the support materiel angle higher to allow it to print under the blades that where sticking out and that seemed to sort the issue.

so over the corse of the last 2 days ive managed to print all but the main fan and today ive started on the casing!

i dont think it will matter because its just the hole for the shaft, the outer diameter for the bearing looks ok i think all ill need it a little bit of super glue

then it was assembly time i was luckey that i didnt get much flex when i printed it so i was able to clamp it to the bench with some super glue and it came out really good

managed to find all the bearings i needed it was a bit of a mission apprently there are some odd sizes in there, had to go to about 3 different shops to find the correct ones
