Tutorial how to make engine part 1

By Aykut Dana on 22 Feb 21:33 114 answers 540935 views 45 comments

I will generate tutorials that explains how to make car engine step by step

I used random dimensions. I want to explain the commands and the way to make an engine. You can use your dimensions

In this part we will start with connecting rod

    How come is the extrude of 11mm and in the drawing it shows thickness = 15mm ? Other than that , thank you very much... I'm using this to get some knowledge about combustion motors as I'll be introduced to them in a couple months in thermodynamics II.

    one question to inventor users,when the crank has been built you can go in and turn the journals to the degs that they need to be,now you cant do that in inventor unless you made one piece and brought it in to the assembly files,any other way of doing it or should I just model the crank in a part file and make the changes there so its all one solid,ie just do it by constraining the sketch in the first place,built the whole crank and then found I could not change the angles in the part file or can I???

Plz any help it would be great. P.S.1. I get this yellow lines in tangents. P.S.2. I am from greece so i am sry about my bad english.

    Don't bother building this engine if you ever want to fully complete it! The tutorial is incomplete and stops at step 49 basically leaving you with the bottom end and the cylinder heads. You can design the rest yourself if you feel capable but don't rely on Aykut Dana (the tutorial maker) for any assistance as he will ignore any and all contact!
