In Space Engineers, how far, in blocks, does the piston extend when it is at its maximum?

1 Answer 1


When fully retracted, pistons are two blocks tall in their respective grids. Therefore small pistons are 1m tall and large pistons are 5m tall. Fully extended, the piston is just at 6 blocks (3m/15m) tall.


  • Minor quibble: The pistons are actually just a bit more than 2 blocks, the heads extend into a third block - not enough to mess up visual aspects, but enough to induce Clang if you're not ready for it. Jul 13, 2021 at 12:12
