Solidworks W16 Engine

This is a model of the W16 Turbo engine used in the world’s fastest production car. I modeled it as a final project for the Introduction to CAD class. During the next few weeks I will walk you through the build, post the files and explain some of the math behind it. This post will cover the modeling of the basic piston:
