Aircooled engine CAD plans/blueprints

Post by Donovan D » Wed Feb 28, 2018 1:45 pm

Does anyone have plans, blueprints or stl files of an aircooled motor ?
Idea is to 3d print it and then assemble it as a 'working' engine, with the bits moving.

That would be super cool...especially if you do a 1:10 scale and use a 12v motor to sub the alt/gen and let it turn the engine. I'll take one :hangloose:

...or start stripping your engine and start 3D scanning all parts ;-)

@Eugene, do you want a 3D model of your neighbor ?

Let me see if I can get the files before committing to anything or wasting anyone's time by not following through on making this.
