Kees Bijker's 3-D Printed V4 Update

Hello Allen,

I wish you and all your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This is the last update of 2023 of my 3d printable Howell V four. Nearly done and still so much to do. Got 99% of the parts printed now and just need to figure out some minor improvements for printing and fitting. Then it is back to the printer and printing all the final versions and creating a bom list and build instructions. This will be 2024 I am sure. The camshafts prove difficult and I have printed 4 different iterations without luck so far. This last one has to be the one. Going to print it with a much smaller nozzle and lower speeds for high definition. Should do the trick. Enjoy the festivities and hope to hear from you either this year, if not next.

Kind regards,

  1. Kees - looking great! Not unlike some of the plastic engines I built from a kit many years ago. Thanks for sharing!
