I spend a lot of time in the past 4 years to make different tuning parts for my old Alfa Romeo racecar.
last weekend I found time for a little rendering of one of the main parts.
I use only materials from the RedSDK material list. The light was a mix of the RedSDK luminanz daylight and a TC spotlight in light blue.
The render engine was also RedSDK.
I’m very Impressed about RedSDK mode, the last 10 years I use only lightworks.
I hope you enjoy it

Sorry for my bad English…

thank you for posting.  8)
I know, from experience, what a lot of work that is.

Question:   does this engine use Morse chain for driving the camshafts?

You can design without engineering, but you cannot engineer without design.
Using Win 10 with Designer 2017 and TurboCAD Pro. Plat. 2016/2017/2018 + Lightworks (64-bit versions).

Thanks Dave

Here are the crankshaft of the same engine.
It was a hard peace of work. Reverse engineering is always very complicated.
First we make a 3D scan of the original part, than we import the scan file into TurboCAD as a IGES File.
So I can create all the cross sections that I need.
In the next step I construct the original crankshaft into the IGES part, with the measurement data of the original crankshaft.
After this I construct the new crankshaft into this TC part with the new layout.
So I can control that all faces of the new crankshaft are inside of the original crankshaft.
Long way to go….
