badBrick Upgrade kit for MakerBot 5-Cylinder Radial Engine
Instructions for the upgrade kit.
Print (1): Twist_Prop.stl
Layer Height: .20
Press on shaft. Match up the notch. Should be a good snug fit.
Print (1): CrankCaseBracketSet.stl
Layer Height: .14
Go to MakerBots Original Engine model and print (2) sets
of the: CrankCasePins.stl
Mount the CrankCaseBrackets to the 4 open spaces between
cylinders. I super glued mine, so they stay..
Print (1): ExhaustPipeMountsSet.stl
Print (1): ExhaustPipesSet.stl
Print (1): ExhaustPipeBracketSet
Layer Height: .14
Lightly sand these parts but leave them a little rough for more of a snug fit for positioning. Press the Exhaust Mounts on to the Curved end of the Exhaust Pipes.
The Exhaust mounts also have pseudo mount holes that line up with the tiny mount holes in the CYLINDER HEAD. So you can use those as guidance postioning. You can also reference the attached pictures.
These parts are snug enough to just sit undisturbed on their own. However this model is a magnet of interest for anyone you'd like to talk to. I have 3 kids (boys..) Sooo... I suggest getting them positioned as you want them and then dropping some super glue to permanently set them. I also super glued the cylinders down too.. Made for a much more "play-with'able" model.
Print (1): HandHolder.stl
Layer Height: .18
The HandHolder is intended to replace the BRACKET of the original model. Soo.. Remove BRACKET and install HandHolder. It will slide in between the original mount and the engine.
- Play with it..
