Sorry, I didn't see the PDF file because of my carelessness, but I have found it now. Thank you very much

I like your work very much, and I also made the materials with 3D printer by myself. However, there is no assembly instruction here. I would like to ask you about the specific assembly method. Can you explain that? I appreciate it. thank you

Having a game printing the Valve housings for some reason, even as slow as 20mm. Thought it was my filament at first, so tried a better quality one... still no joy. Turned 45 degree's and seems to be printing better. Hope this helps someone :)

If I understand this correctly, all of the parts are printable. Correct?

There are no screws, bearing, etc that have to be purchased?

Hi bbstep
The are some hardware parts needed.
There is a list or hardware needed at end of the assembly guide,
Check out the thing files and you will see the PDF assembly guide there.
The motor drive system is optional, but you will need some small screws.
I am going to print another one of these using different colour filaments when I have finished my current project..

All files uploaded.
I think there must be a bug in the upload system when dragging more than one file into the upload box at a time.
Anyway it looks like they are all there now.
I will be more careful in future.

Hi Cabbageheart,
Three more STL-files are missing:

  • Crank Rod
  • for the two Crank spacers
  • and for the 8 screw caps

Please add these files as well.

Sorry about the missing parts. I don't know how that happened.
I have now added the missing stl files.

Hi cabbageheart,

I have started with printing all the parts (47pieces) as available in the "Thing files".
However your very nice assembly guide contains 53 items.
The two main parts missing are:
the beam half
and the fork arm plate with the two arms
These are the most essential parts to finish the engine model (as pictured in the parts picture).
The cladding part B, I suppose, is equal to part A except for the hole in it.
Please add these STL-files to the Thing Files.
