Introduction: PAPER-MADE STIRLING ENGINE MODEL | How to Make
Below I will show you how I did my first Instructable. It is a paper-made model of an Striling engine. In case someone wants to build it, on paper or other material, here I explain the whole process, and I leave a manual that explains how to make each of the pieces.
PD: all the measurements are in millimeters
Step 1: Pieces
First of all, we started making the parts detailed in the manual
Step 2: Joining the Pieces
We will start with the wheel, using the following parts. Joing the pieces with superglue.
Step 3: First Connecting Rod
Join them with superglue
Step 4: Crank
Join this pieces with the previous rod, only use de superglue at the ends of the small rod
Step 5: Rod Cut
Cut the # 10 rod as needed, approximately as in the image
Step 6: Wheel Axle
Join the wheel with the long rod of the previous piece
Step 7: End of the Axis
Join the last #2 piece with the #10 small rod, don't use superglue
Step 8: Adding More Pieces
Add one of the #2 pieces to the previous element (don't use superglue), now add the crank, use superglue to join this with the end of the rod.
Step 9: Finishing the Axis
Join one of the ends of the small rod with the crank, use superglue
Step 10: Add a Base
With this part finished you can set all this to a base
Step 11: Cilinder
In piece # 9 we must make a 6mm hole at a distance of 15mm, here we will stick piece # 15
Then we will cover one end of the cylinder with piece # 5
Step 12: Piston
Step 13: Piston Articulation
Join this piece to the rod, use the last #16 piece
Step 14: Cilinder & Piston
Now we will join the piston with in cylinder and the crank
First, through the piston shaft we will insert piece # 7, this will serve to cover the other end of the cylinder. Once this is done we can join the piston shaft to the crank articulation.
Step 15: Ending...
Now we unite the pieces # 13 as pillars to the cylinder.
Now we can join the cylinder to the base, calculating the right distance for the piston to make its full travel
Step 16: Mechanism
Here is a GIF. showing the piston travel and the movement of the wheel
