Foldable Shark

$ 3.99



GOODesign is a design studio established in Seoul, Korea by a representative who has been active in product design and 3D CG field for 20 years. As a design company that pursues a reasonable and differentiated digital design, it has always presented a new direction through working with clients such as Hyundai Motor, Siemens Korea and beiersdorf. This time, we have put out the life product for 3D printing by utilizing various technique design based on the shape of the Class-A surface. These products are especially the result of deep research on the 3D printing dominant shape that can not be mass-produced using a mold.

In summer, there is a remembrance of an animal, which is a shark. Sharks are also a subject of horror, but they are also familiar animals for children. So I designed a foldable shark this time.

This foldable shark was the first folding structure applied to fish. I designed a new structure to move the body divided into three. It is designed to move the fins on both sides. The strong jaws and teeth of a shark are the most emphasized part. So I designed the jaw to move.

This folding procedure is as follows:

1. First put the dorsal fin of the shark on one side.
2. Push the tail part and insert it.
3. Then fold the torso and insert it into the rest of the dorsal fin.
4. Finally, if you push the head of the shark and put it, it is finished.

Please refer to the following video for the folding process.

    Just printed using my Ultimaker 3. Looks good! but tail, head and fins fixed and will not move to assemble. Do you have the Cura settings yet for this?

    There will be 2 things cause fuse problem.
    1. first layer fusing - That problem caused by low nozzle height. Check your nozzle height.
    2. Many string between parts and gaps - Use more retraction. Ultimaker 3 is bowden type 3D printer. So very weak at retraction. Please use more retraction.
    Thank you!

    The pectoral fins keep breaking off, instead of breaking free, to pivot.. Any suggestions? Is there a way to break them loose another way, that doesn't put as much load on the fin itself?

    2019-11-07 15:50:45

    My guess is that the printing of the inner hinge is not very good, so I have difficulty with fin movement, and it seems to break when you give too much force to move it.
    If you use enough retraction in the slicing options and increase the wall thickness and infill, the fins will be harder and less broken.

    hi, is it possible to print it on small 3d printer?
    my son like this design, but i only have toybox 3d printer

    2019-06-09 17:40:56

    No problem if your 3D printer is in good condition. We also print at 70% size. I'll attach a picture here.

    Help set up

    Hi. It would be nice if you let me know what the problem is with the print first, but I do not have that story, so let me just look at the slicing settings.
    0.25mm layer thickness is not very good. We recommend 0.1mm layer thickness. And Bed temp usually uses 60 degrees Celsius. The extrusion width is probably 0.4 mm. If the extrusion width is larger than the nozzle size, the moving parts stick together.
    I hope this helps.

    It is possible to ABS materials?

    2019-05-13 13:53:17

    ABS can be used but not recommended due to severe shrinkage. ABS may also export toxic substances during print.

    are there any recommended print settings?

    2019-04-29 14:47:56

    We put the slicing settings in the information. We use the same slicing settings for every design. You may also refer to other design slicing settings within We will add content about Cura and other slicing software later. Thank you~
