Solid Modeled Assembly

For our modeling we chose the main components of the intake/outlet valves which includes the valve itself (A), a spring (B), a push rod (C), a threaded rod (D), a connecting plate (E), an a pair of plates to secure the spring (F). We chose these components because, as a subsystem, they show quite well how a few relatively minor and simple pieces can perform a vital function well.
The CAD package we used was Autodesk Inventor. Inventor is a powerful and fairly easy to understand package, with the added benefit of having a full version trial available for students.
