HereΒ΄s a nice model of a Ford 427ci Cobra V8 engine for your dektop.
I found a very detailed CAD database of this engine on GrabCAD. After scaling the model down to around 20% of itΒ΄s original size I started the CAD preparation and meshing work (around 100 hours of preparation time) to get this highly detailed model of this legendary engine. The transmission with bellhousing and shifter linkage is also included. As you can see, the modell consists of a large number of
single .stl files (very high polygon 0.5 - 1mm meshing size). That give you the ability to use different colors while printing the parts. Or you can paint the parts before the assembly starts. After printing you have to glue together the parts to get this amazing engine model. Some parts are a little tricky to print! You should have some experience with your printer! See "Print Settings" for some tips!

Now have fun with this amazing model engine!!

Materials and methods


You have to print the files:

accelerator_pump.stl 4x
freeze_plug.stl 4x
fuel_bowl_caps.stl 4x
throttle_linkage.stl 2x
valve_cover.stl 2x
V-Belt.stl 2x
velocity_stacks.stl 8x
weber_carb_body.stl 4x

In most cases you can use the standard resolution of 0.1mm.
Some parts needed a little higher resolution of maybe 0.06mm.
these are:

The spark wires should be printed upsidedown (terminals which are going to the rotorcap touching the buildplate). Here you have to mess around a little with your support structure settings (overhang angle 30 degrees?!?).
Use the position as provided in .stl file for the headers. Also have a closer look to the support settings.
The part throttle_linkage.stl should also printed upsidedown!

Assembly Information

Use the rendered images for assembling the engine!!!

the part crankshaft_end.stl is positioned on the lower timing cover (the crankshaft part sticking out of the front of engine). The vibration damper is mouted on this part.

the part accelerator_pump.stl will be glued to the part weber_carb_body.stl. YouΒ΄ll find the flange on the carb body!
The position of part fuel_bowl_caps.stl is between the intake stacks of part weber_carb_body.stl.

The rest should be clear. If you have questions about assembly, please Email!!
