Hi Guys. I am more than happy to share my files, regrettably again this file is too large to include at 2,165 Kb. I will try at a later date to whittle it down to include here.
You can download the plans for this model from here if it helps:- http://www.vapeuretmodelesavapeur.com/telechargements4/

Would it help if I provide some space where you can upload the model? I'm currently on the road (precisely road/plane/road) but I may configure it tomorrow.

Here is a link to un1corn's model: https://owncloud.gwdg.de/index.php/s/NTvKVFdPgoSahDc thanks for providing it!

I can currently not test the link myself, so I hope it just works.

Horizontal 4 cylinder rotary valve steam engine.
I have included your image in the Release_notes_0.19 just to have something there while we pick the final images that will be included in the release notes. Ideally it would be an image that was built with the 0.19 development version so we can say we are showcasing this version and not some old version.

It seems most of your models were made with FreeCAD 0.16, and then they were assembled with A2plus.

Could you say that this model would work the same in 0.19? Because if it does, then we can say it was created with 0.19 as well.

If you think this model is not good enough, then would you provide another model?

I have also included the S&S steam engine from your other thread. But same situation, it seems it was created in 0.16.

Ideally some information on how it was created would be ideal, for example: it consists of 100 objects, created with PartDesign, with colors assigned to each Body, put together in A2plus, and using the Fasteners workbench for the bolts.

Sorry guys, Assembly file for this engine is 2,165 KB and is to large for me to upload.
As vocx noted most of my files are in FC V0.16, V0.17 was not stable on my machine and so had to wait for V0.18 which I am now using, I will upgrade to V0.19 when the stable release is available.
