A plus: 2 pistons engine, get the timing right!

This is a nice add-on to my previous project: here below is a video where I simulate two pistons working together (moving a common crankshaft for instance). In order to do this effectively, one should calculate how to provide the right timing to each piston. In this example it’s quite easily done just by shifting the position of piston 2 by 180 degrees (or pi radians). A nice exercise would be trying to add more pistons.

Here is the animation on you tube:
