Hi. Just thought I would submit this image as I was quite pleased with the result.

Made with Bryce 7 Pro. All objects are made from the objects and primitives
that come with Bryce.

Used Elefont for the text.

I’m open to criticism but please don’t hurt me. smile

I’ve included the messy scene screenshot for the curious.

Beautifully crafted scene and nicely rendered - very nicely.  What is that a 500cc piston from a 4.2 litre V8 engine?  What would that be in cubic inches?  I bet you were thinking in cubic inches?

Anyway the only thing I would point out is that one of your piston rings (the expander/spacer - the “wiggly” one) looks like it could benefit from a different material mapping mode?  Maybe spherical?

But certainly you’d get top marks from me if DAZ 3D still boasted a Bryce gallery.

This looks amazing! The wood looks quite realistic as does the metal work. I agree with David, this would be a top marks type of submission if the galleries were operating. Great work indeed. You should join us over at Bryce5.com.

Keep at it!!

The diameter of the piston is larger then the height so I conclude the engine runs at low revs. Outstanding modelling and excellently presented.

Over square?  This is why I am guessing large cc V8.

First of all thanks very much for the really kind comments.

The piston wasn’t modeled on any particular make or model.
My son and I have just completely rebuilt a Honda B18C4 engine.
I just thought afterwards I would try a picture loosely relating to it.

I know what you mean about the mesh / wavy piston ring.
That particular ring we put in the engine was like the one in the picture.
It’s like “/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\” but obviously circular,
with a metal wire going through the center. I got the metal ring as you can see
going across the gap but couldn’t get it right when making the object
so just settled for a mesh material from Bryce.

I may still try again.
Thanks for your input.
smile

Yup, GM Opel/Vauxhalls use(d) to have almost square ratio pistons. American cars have usually pistons with a wider diameter than height while sports cars have it the other way around.

Very well done. Just a small observation though, there are more rings than grooves on the piston if the intention was for a complete piston kit.

Cheers

There are 2 rings that go with the oil curly ring. One above, one below the oil ring. Then two for compression.
These all fit in 3 groves on the piston.

Yeah, remembered that after I posted but had to dash off to work. It’s been many years since I last rebuilt an engine.

Hmm, I would have thought the opposite. I have yet to see an American car that had a wider than height ratio. But then again, I haven’t seen the high end cars. Which is why I kind of thought that piston look weird. But I thought he was modeling some foreign car.

I have an American V8 - something like 4 or 5 litre - engine sat on my kitchen floor - it’s not mine.  I’m just the sort of person who lets friends rebuild car engines in their kitchen.

And who’d have thought it - Blaine’s a petrol head?  Now we know how to coax him out of the shadows…

Ha!, funny you should mention the kitchen.
Here’s the Honda engine we rebuilt.

The cleanness and tidiness of your kitchen puts me to shame, however you try keeping a kitchen clean and tidy when you’ve got a whacking great wood stove in it?

Not everyone cares about the mess… some just appreciate the fire.
