If your numbers really are height/width/&depth, this is a sizable part.
There may be better ways to fabricate your project.
If you share the file, someone might be able to give some tips.

Welcome to the forum.

Price is not only the plastic implied in your project, which, btw, looking at your sizes, it can easily be way more than "10 bucks"...

You also need to take into account FDM takes HOURS, and for your project, probably DAYS to print. That implies energy, someone to take time to prepare your file, look after it on the printing process, etc....

It's not "that easy".

Good luck finding a printer which is able to print more than "649.8mm". They do exist, but as you guessed, pricey.
