This is really cool. The guy admits that these are for display purposes as the materials wouldn't be strong enough for an actual engine.

This led me to think about what a cool hobby it would be to 3D print transmissions and engines on a smaller scale and assemble them like models.

I'm fascinated by the mechanics of transmissions. It's like a magical black box.
