5-Cylinder Radial Engine Model
by MakerBot, published
This 5-Cylinder Radial Engine Model is based on the Forest Edwards Radial 5, a radial model aircraft engine.
This engine started from excellent paper plans drawn by Robert Sigler. The engine described in RobertsÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s plans is intended to be machined form metal, and had to be extensively modified to work with desktop 3D printing technology.
Here's a video of the engine being cranked by hand: flickr.com/photos/bvicarious/8043692271/in/set-72157631666979368
