Piston is a component that plays vital roles in internal combustion engines such as in reciprocating engines, rotating pumps and so on. It is found in the cylinder of an engine block. The computations involved in piston movement in the cylinder of an engine are complicated and rigorous because of all the parameters involved. In order to obtain the required details, a computer aided design (CAD) software package is importantly needed not only to expose and do the intricate engineering analysis but also to show high accuracy of the developed software during simulation. The software was designed using Microsoft Visual Studio package because it supports and has built in languages such as C/C++ (visual C++), VB.Net (visual basic.Net) and C# (visual C#). However, the programming language used in the development of this software was Microsoft C#. The CAD developed for the piston movement was tested to be highly accurate, faster and convenient. This makes the CAD software developed viable to be used in monitoring piston movement
