Thank you all.

As for Solidworks, I looked into after someone suggested it to a hobbyist woodworker who was looking to get into making 3D drawings for the projects they were doing. Ha! I could buy all of the tools in my shop and have money left over for the price of a year of Solidworks. I expect any hobby woodworker using it is only doing so because their employer pays for it and doesn't mind that the employees are using it for personal stuff. ;)

Thank you Bob.

I would like to see someone who uses F360 model this thing. I wonder if Don or someone would record a video. I could send them the reference image I worked from.

I know that the steam engine is just for demonstration, but I think it should show a steam exhaust port and not only an inlet port. Great modeling project though.

Charley, the steam engine model is based on plans which are available on the web. The exhaust port is shown. Exhaust is through the center of the exhaust valve.
