Pinnacle Engines approached Sabertooth Productions to provide a MOA ('Mechanism of Action') animation explaining their unique opposable piston and sleeve valve engine. While we're accustomed to creating MOA animations for our Medical, Biotech and Hi-tech clients at Sabertooth - this was our first animation for the automotive industry.
The goal of the animation was to showcase Pinnacle's opposable piston technology by contrasting it to a standard internal combustion engine. Numerous features like improved heat dissipation (resulting from Pinnacle's unique sleeve valves) were highlighted during the coarse of the animation.
The models in the animation are a combination of custom 3D modeling from Sabertooth and prepped CAD files provided by Pinnacle.
