A good news here: General Electric announced it is giving away 12 "Build Your Own Jet Engine", an assembly kit that lets aviation enthusiasts build their own 3D printed jet engine replicas.

"The 3D printed model fits comfortably on desks, mantelpieces, and most birthday cakes." notes GE. GE will select 12 winners thourgh a contest on its website to aviation geeks across the U.S.. The contest runs from July 11th through July 21st and the first 12 entrants will be notified by email. Each potential winner will subsequently be sent his/her prize within 2-4 weeks.

The Sweepstakes is open to residents of the 48 continental United States and D.C., who are 18 years of age.

Those who can not join the contest, no worries, GE is actually letting everyone make their own 3D printed jet engine at home. GE has uploded the model engine, rendered by designer Patrick Saville, on Thingiverse so you can still download the design files. It will take roughly 12 hours to print. Download the files and visit Imgur for a complete how-to guide, as well as the template to build the box.
