The Knitted Engine, part 2

Here’s my latest diagram of the Knitted Engine. Hopefully I’ve got most of the bits in the right place, but I’ll find out next week when I talk to an engineer at the BMW plant!

I’m making some of the parts, before some intensive workshops with Coleshill Primary School to learn knitting skills and produce lots of the components. I’m partway through my crankshaft, and contemplating how to seamlessly knit the oil pan over the weekend…

Update: there are 5 posts in total about the Knitted Engine, from initial sketches and workshops to photos of the finished piece. View them all here.
