Just An Engine Block, Printed

Peter from RepRapCentral advises us of a very cool 3D print recently done on one of their MakerBot Replicators: a Ford Engine Block. 
 
No, you can't actually run this engine, but printed in blue translucent PLA it looks pretty good. Check out the high-precision detail of this print in the close view above. 
 
Relatively large and complex items such as this engine block were challenging to print years ago on home equipment. Nowadays the machinery available to anyone can produce some amazing results.
