Instructions

This project is based on the same elements of ngrm's "Engine" project http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/ngmr/70365.

The purpose here was to REMOVE ALL TRIG CALCULATIONS, by making use only of the MECHANICAL CONSTRAINTS of a real four-stroke engine (simulated by Scratch's collision detection blocks).

Look at the detailed comments in order to see how the constraints are making it move in the desired way.

update:
-added external cylinder with collision detection
