3D Printed Oscillating Steam Engine

"This is a completely 3D printed oscillating steam engine printed in ABS plastic on my Makerbot Thing-O-Matic. In the video the engine is being run from a Co2 bottle at about 15 PSI.
In the background you can see the horizontal double action steam engine I am still working on. It will be fully functional as well."
