A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid. The steam engine uses the force produced by steam pressure to push a piston back and forth inside a cylinder. This pushing force can be transformed, by a connecting rod and crank, into rotational force for work.
I made this model a while back. It was lying around in my hard drives, so i’ve given it a quick update and tidying to be a 3d printable project. Here it is, continue reading for more images and STL files.
There is a multi piece STL file package which you can get from here.
