600mm length model was printed by my huge 3d printer

I get a demand from boss’s friend , he hope to print an object for a car . Wait 1 – 2 weeks until his engineer send me the 3D design artwork , but their UG poor designer create a bad model , can not use in Solidworks as well as 3D slice software .

Later he output files as *.stl , then I start to print . The first challenge is to level / adjust my huge 3D printer’s bed , I waste about one week to adjust step by step , and I found my 3mm aluminum ground seems not smooth . ( But it is still OK to try . )

firstlayer -1It is lucky that I succeed in one time , no need to adjust any more . After waste some hours printing , I notice the support’s density is too much , waste time and money , so I stop the Huge 3D Printer , and re-create the slice gcode . I joint it carefully and it looks no difference in model appearance . Here is final looking of the printed model .

Is it fine enough ? Each layer is 0.2mm .
