This one might blow someone away.  ;D
There is also a 3D PDF file.

Nice models Ausdier.
I am seeing more and more of the virtual engines online.

I don't have the render package, but here is the latest model I have worked on.
It is a work in progress, with the intent of casting this engine one day.

And a 3D pdf.

That looks great Pat.  :ThumbsUp:
Good luck with the casting and hope to see a thread started soon.
Cheers.

Just went through your thread.
Lovely models.

I've just started CAD and one thing I like is the ability to work/play even when I can't get into the shop.

Thanks Carl.
Good luck with your CAD as well, hope to see one of your models here soon.
I do most of my CAD work when I am sitting in front of the TV of an evening.
Cheers.

Here is a project some people might want to get off the ground.  :facepalm2: :lolb: :slap:
Some renders and another 3D PDF to have a look around.
Cheers.

Good stuff Ausdier.  I owe you a hearty thanks for doing a virtual cylinder head for my Bonzer engine.  You got me to thinking outside the box and though I didn't use your design exactly it got me over one of the initial hurdles I was facing when I first considered making the Bonza.  Then that led to AussieJimG and well the rest is history.

Your models may be virtual now but they may lead someone to build one :ThumbsUp:

Cheers,
Phil

Thanks a lot for that Phil, I am truly glad that I was able to help in some small way.
Who knows, maybe one day when I get some room I might be able to make something like this for myself.
Cheers and keep up the good work.  :cheers:

Just realised that I hadn't posted this engine.
So this put a bit of a FIRE under me to post it.  :lolb: :hammerbash: :ROFL:

Awesome models. It would be a real challenge to build some of those from metal and wood. I enjoy machining, especially learning new things, but I may be more of a "virtual model" person. I got about halfway through building a small engine that I modeled using TurboCAD 3-D, but as I made parts and assembled it I found how hard it is to hold tolerances and actually get something together and moving smoothly. And I see changes I might like to make, but more easily done on a virtual machine.  ;) :atcomputer:

Thanks a lot Paul.
I hope some day soon when I get a few bigger projects done I might be able to start something myself.
