Nice. Have you modeled the internal parts?

Yes.If I wanted I could break it down and machine up the individual parts,I left out all the screws intentionally so it would render quicker all it needs is candle to generate some heat and it workable

Cool and done in version 11.2. I have a version 11 (not installed), but I have not tried at that time, rendering, at all, so I have no comparison. Each new version brings  usual number of facilities.

Sweet, I love the render, especially the way you have it setting in the shop location. Carroll

Hi Marek

There few reasons I use v.11.2 one is that it compatible where as it will open in any newer version, I have my Cam plug-in with it so if some Tc member needs some help with Turbocad Cam they can open a sample tcw.file or I would make demonstration videos using it, I also have animation plug-in also with it. I also use v.9.2 which there is end users that still use it as well and may need some help with it also.

The U.A.C. causes havoc which the slider needs to be set to lowest setting. If not some tools will be absent from menus or in the Gray out, although it works fine with W7 compatibility I have set for Windows Xp Service Pack 3 in the compatibility mode which seems to be at comfortable setting for it. If need updates I got them in zip folder. According Tc website they go back as far back v.16.

I have use 14, 15, 16,17,18,19, trials versions and are fine also. But wonder whats in the line up for v20.I'm considering Inventor LT in the future if the price is right. But I’ll never abandon Tc its my prefer for renditioning tool.

Thanks I used that background to get some kind of mood to tone down the reflection but only gain more shadows perhaps another choice of material would be a better solution. I plan on doing another stirling engine maybe I’ll have better luck

Andy
I thought about but with all the moving parts I’m thinking it would crash in Animation v.3.Ideally if I was going to do it would be good demonstration where if was transparent showing the moving action of the internal parts.

Very cool WD. I really like these little engines. I can't wait until my kids are old enough to appreciate such things.  :)
