Description
This project is a Stirling engine, inline 4-cylinder. It’s not an existing model, but one that I’ve created. Wooded base with bronzed slab cover, aluminum bloc and cylinders, titanium rods, silicon and PTFE gaskets, other main components are made in glass, iron and stainless steel. It’s a small model, anti-clockwise rotation output (pulley), powered by four oil candles. It includes an oil cooled crankshaft, thanks to an oil gear pump. Finally, all fasteners are standard ISO taken in McMaster-Carr library. The principle is based on retrieving energy by moving heat from one ‘hot source’ to another colder one. It transforms a part of the energy coming from the ‘hot source’ into mechanical energy. Here the ‘hot source’ are the 4 oil candles. The whole project was designed using only Fusion 360 as part of the “Design for Autodesk Fusion 360 challenge”.

For the quality, I cannot help... I also render the motion study in the same size. I think Autodesk should offer power user like you more cloud credits.

Hi,
I have already try to do some ‘motion study cloud rendering’, and I’ve uploaded a video to show you the main issue: I do not have enough cloud credits to have an appropriate quality. In fact, as a student I can only request cloud rendering lower than 17 ‘cloud credits’. That means the best quality I can get for my motion study is standard render quality with an image size of 960*640 (62.1MP). What about the 'work flow' I'm sorry but I’m not sure to understand what you mean: if your question focus on the overall Fusion 360 interface, I find it easy-going and intuitive.

Hi ALexis
I have played around the motion study, looks very cool! Actually you can leverage the A360 Rendering in Fusion360 (Cloud renderer, won't occupy your machine's CPU/GPU capability) to render the motion study into small animation, then share it to your gallery project to enrich the presentation. BTW, do you have any suggestion on the work flow of modelling, visualization and sharing?

Hi Jay Zhang,
I’ve just uploaded a new version of the model, with all joints named and a motion study. So you can download it and try to make the engine running on fusion 360. I’ll also make a screencast of the motion study very soon, but as my computer is not very powerful, the video has a lot of lag.
I hope this gonna help you understand the working principle of this model.

It will be greater if a motion study can be shared, so that we can exam how the engine works.

Detail, complex, and amazing Mr Alexis!

Anyway, can you help me to like my projects? I'm participating in Autodesk 360 Mini Competition in Indonesia, "Indonesia Handicraft". Here's the links to my projects:

1. https://gallery.autodesk.com/fusion-360/projects/kujang
2. https://gallery.autodesk.com/fusion-360/projects/delman-style-lounge-chair

I need likes in each project to be judges by juries/panel. Thank you very much!

Best Regards,
Arif
