Single-cylinder oscillating engine

Postby Laurent14 » Fri Feb 01, 2019 3:35 pm

Hello everyone,
Handyman self-taught convinced, I had the opportunity a few years ago to put hands in Solidworks.
I wanted to know what I could do with Freecad. I chose as chalenge, a small oscillating engine single cylinder according to the plan of Julius De Waal that we find here http://www.vapeuretmodelesavapeur.com/telechargements4/
That's what it gives. I used the PartDessing, A2Plus, Spreadsheet and techdraw workbenches. You will forgive me the errors of drawing, I am neither mechanic nor draftsman.
No major difficulties except Techdraw which is sluggish not possible and with tools not ergonomic in comparison with Part Desing or Scketcher. But I understand that its development is recent.
This says, it's a hell of a job for designers and for my limited personal use, that's enough.
I'm not familiar with Shakspeare's language either, I use google translate

chapeau!

would you be willing to share your FreeCAD file? i would love to inspect your Techdraw pages, as i did not believe such results were possible.

Laurent14 has explained in detail in the french forum how he made it. On first thought: unbelievable; on second look: very sophisticated usage of TechDraws possibilites.. Google translate should help you to understand.

Hello, here you will find the file of the exploded and the associated color image.
For the use of the svg files, report to the subject on the french forum. https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=33868
Good study.

Thank to Lauren14, I know a source for good mechanical plan used for practicing FreeCAD :D
I am also learning this software and I'm loving it.
Attached is my practicing project with a plan I stole from the website Lauren14 has introduced.
