## W16 Engine in SolidWorks

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:

Here is the link to the document that I used as a reference.

“The W Engine Concept – Self Study Program” VW of America, 2002, available here

See detailed explanation in the extended entry at the end of the post.

Thank you for reading about this build and stay tuned for the next post which will include the Conrod and the Piston-Rod-Rings Assembly.

## Motor W16 in SolidWorks

Acesta este un model creat dupa motorul W16 ce propulseaza cea mai rapida masina in productie de serie din lume. Am creat acest proiect pentru cursul de CAD. In urmatoarele cateva saptamani voi detalia constructia, voi atasa fisierele si voi explica geometria si rationamentele folosite. Acest prim post va prezenta modelarea pistonului.

Aici puteti gasi documentul folosit ca referinta:

“The W Engine Concept – Self Study Program” VW of America, 2002

Explicatiile detaliate despre constructia blocului pot fi gasite in “extended entry” la sfarsitul postarii.

Va multumesc pentru ca ati citit despre aceasta constructie. Continuati sa cititi urmatoarele postari ce vor include intregul ansamblul biela – piston.
