What is Weekend Mechanic 3D?

Weekend Mechanic 3D is a reference guide that helps you learn about the internal combustion engine of a modern automobile. It features models and narrated tutorials to show and teach you how these parts all work together. It’s free in the Google Play Store with in app purchases.

Here’s how the app works. Inside is 3D rendered models of your most standard car parts that include things like the battery, ignition coil, and spark plug. You can view each part as a 3D model that you can spin and look more closely at. There is also an option to explode the model which will essentially deconstruct the part so you can see all of the individual pieces and we thought that was kind of cool.

The other part of this application includes narrated tutorials on what each piece and how it works. Currently there are only a few of these but the developers state that they are creating more. The narrations describe the part, its roll in the engine, and how the individual components of the part work together to make it work. The in app purchases will add more parts and narrations.

Overall, this is a really awesome idea. It’s a little early on so there isn’t a lot of content there yet and the in app purchases are a tad expensive. However, if you’re looking for a reference guide for an engine then this is a very promising app. It’s free to download so you can check it out and be there when the developers add more stuff.
