Take a look at an amazing 3-D printed outboard engine

Three-dimensional printing is currently in its infancy, particularly when it comes to creating functional end-use products.

At a recent event called 3-D Print Week NY, MakerBot was on hand with a large 3-D printed outboard boat motor, measuring 4 feet, all 3D printed on a MakerBot 3-D printer.

Designed by MakerBot Product Designer Carlos Cruz, it was by far my favorite 3-D printed object within the entire MakerBot section of the show. No, the engine is not operational, but it sure is cool to look at.
