Description

The realization of a 1914 aero engine for a local museum. The Combat Air Museum, Topeka, Kansas, USA is a non-profit organisation, so all my work was carried out for free, as a gesture to support their activities.

The engine was modeled from technical drawings of the period, as well as photographs from service manuals for the engine.

Given the finished unit would be 3D printed and installed on an 80% scale replica of an Airco DH2 WW1 fighter, I was mainly interested in exterior surfaces (and optimizing the design for 3D printing on an FDM printer) (TAZ 5)

  • This would be my first serious application of Fusion 360 (usually I produce training videos for my students).
  • It would be my first 3D printing venture (and Fusion worked great - reliable modeling, rendering and seamless STL generation)
  • Finished model took over 380 hours to print, being produced in silver ABS filament.
  • Final model attached to the plane in April 2016.
  • For more information, visit the DH2 webpage here.

In April, 2017 I completed the main armament for DH2, a .30 caliber Lewis Machine Gun - this has also been designed using Fusion 360 and being printed at 80% scale to match the aircraft.

Many thanks to Gene, Dave, Danny, Dick and Don for the opportunity to work on this project.
