90 hours is the total print time.  The largest component is the weight shell at 17 hours.  Each half of the frame is around 12 hours.  Most of the rest are under 2 hours unless grouping multiple items.  I trust the Prusa enough to start a job in the evening that will run unattended all night.  It is inside the house and we are well protected with smoke detectors.

I have a Prusa i3 MK3 and really like it.  I considered the multi-material upgrade, but wasn't sure about the reliability.  Every color change needs to cut, retract, reload, and purge the filament.  There are too many possible failure points.  Manual color changes by layer have been working just fine for my clocks.
