Wow..pretty impressive, just don't leave it locked up in a hot car...!

Now have a look at how the many pieces of the wing are assembled with C/A ..!

If printed with ABS or PETg the temperature should not be too much of a bother. At that scale the 3d print material is not as critical as the weight of the non airframe parts. ABS gets laid down at between 225 and 245 deg Celsius.

PLA or LW-PLA would probably be a bigger concern.

Who has a car big enough to put that monster in?
