zetec CAD drawing (work in progress) ...

I am using AutoDesk Inventor to draw these.

I'm going from a web page I found that goes through step by step on how to draw a complete engine --> https://grabcad.com/questions/tutorial-how-to-make-engine-part-1

I am going to try to get things as close to actual as I can. But keep in mind that I'm an extreme novice when it comes to drawing/modeling. I've no formal training or schooling. Simply tools and patience.

I've had to search out a few dimensions and others I've had to guess.
Measurement references I've used:
Zetec exterior blueprint
Ford Racing engine specs (zetec 2.0)
Zetec Engine Specs (I'm actually using the FSM and I can't find a link to this on FF)
Piston Specs 84mm at the top and a slight taper to the bottom of the skirt
Ring Specs


This thread will be updated as I finish parts and there are lots of them. I'm in no rush either, so don't depend on anything being finished in a few days or weeks. This is in my spare time, at my leisure. I will not take special requests or skip ahead. This is a learning process for me.


This post will be updated as things are finished. Or as I edit parts for accuracy. Meaning, don't depend on the same picture being here forever; they are subject to change. (if you like it, best to save it) I will amend pictures as to their revision #.
When complete the title will be edited to reflect "completed".

And I'm more than open for criticism, advice, questions and advice. Just ask.



Zetec Connecting Rod: (revision #1)





To build the Crankshaft I had to figure out a few dimensions, journal widths and counterweight widths as well as counterweight diameters. All of those are best guess based on my below drawing:





Zetec Crankshaft: (revision 4)




Zetec Piston:





Zetec Engine Block: (revision lost count)







Zetec Cylinder Head:

I'm not sure how this works at all. Shit just spins and spins wrong.
LOL

But that's what learning is for, right?





And then there's this error:





So got that one fixed but have another issue:

There is a limit as to how much you can fit in one post. That's why I'm grabbing 4 right off the bat.


Video's will go here eventually.

Awesome! I have wanted to do this for a long time but never had the time.

Are you setting material properties also? You could then find center of mass and balance and get fairly accurate weight numbers.

I've looked at them but haven't adjusted anything yet.
I'll do that stuff once I get the parts roughed out.

The plan is to be thorough and as accurate as I can manage.

Nice work so far!

If you need any measurements I'd be happy to oblige. I just so happen to have a 2.0L Zetec completely dismantled down in my garage. It wouldn't be a bother to get a few for you. Just let me know if you need anything specific.

Likewise I had a disassembled oil pump I can take measurements for you. also have pistons, connecting rods, springs, and retainers. just need to get new batteries for my calipers.

That is a pretty spiffy tutorial. As a whole, a good way to learn about modeling is to take a real piece in your hand and model every detail. Some parts look simple but modeling them can be deceptive or require patterns which as best created off the three basic planes.

For the most part I have used Pro/E and Creo 2.0 and I have not used AutoDesk Inventor. I really do not have much in the way of advice, but if you get stuck odds are you can find what you need on Google. People will approach modeling things very differently and sometimes it is good to simple look at other peoples approaches or to look at what they have created, figure out how you would do it, and then look at what they did.

I have spare engines, accessories, heads-a-plenty, etc. Both SVT and zetec. So I shouldn't need any measurements, unless I get lazy.
Thanks for the offer though.

Con Rod updated.
Still not quite how I want it, but closer. And the measurements now match the Crank journals.
