I have just bought a set of plans for their 9 cylinder radial engine. To get a real feel for the engine and also to ease manufacture I am about to start converting the design to Solidworks.
Before I reinvent the wheel, I wondered whether anyone else has done this on this group.
an edwards 5 cyl radial i've modelled in solidworks. not quite finished. work in progress
I too just purchased a set of plans for the 18 cylinder engine from Lee Hodgson at Ageless Engines, LLC. I am looking for any parts that are CNC coded for the 9 cyl or the 18 cyl. Since both are the same in a lot of parts like heads, cylinders, oil pump etc. I am running Bobcad ver 24 but can import just about anything into this software. I know who!!! Bobcad what??? We have a simple shop, that mostly makes one off parts for hot rods and Corvettes. My main stay is in the electrical industry for speciality items. But hobbies just hone our skills. If you can help that would be great...jim
Here I've made a 9-cyl radial engine Wright J5 in 1/4 semiscale
