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.

The shape of the car with folding design that I have challenged this time is sedan type. The car selected as a sedan is the Nissan Skyline GT-R (1971). This car was very popular, and in the movie Fast and Furious 5, Paul Walker, who is now in heaven, came out and became more famous.

In this sedan folding car, we challenged all the openings of the car to be possible. It's a hood, two doors, and a trunk. However, since the hood is the way forward, I had to build a new structure for this part. Through much trial and error, I finally designed a new structure.

Be careful when printing, because the hood may fall off during the print, so be careful that the print sticks to the bed. Using Raft is also a good way.

In the folding process, push the joints together so that the four parts touch each other, then insert the front part and the rear part.
Pull the hood up carefully and then move it.

Please refer to the following video for details of folding method.

    This is another great print file. This is my 4 file from your collection but my first print with the sliding joint feature. I'm having issues with the sliding sections being too tight and/or completely fusing together while printing. I've tried raft supports, straight to the glass bed, and 70% material flow at first layer among other slicing tweeks with no success. What do you recommend I use for different slicing options to avoid this problem. I'm using a Ender 3 printer with latest 4.0 Cura slicer and Hatchbox PLA @ 180C hot end 60C first layer bed temps to 20C after. Thanks for your help and fun prints.

    The reason why the various parts stick together is because the height of the nozzle of your 3D printer is too low. The following picture will help you understand. If the height of the nozzle is high, it falls off the bed well, and if it is too low, the parts stick together. Please adjust the height of the nozzle properly.

    If you scale down, Same thing happen to your print. The following picture will help you understand. If you print this design bigger, almost all problems will be solved. Please try to print larger. Thank you~

    I’ve done loads of your snap model, some good some bad, the beetle one failed on the horns on 2 printers , gave up in the end. May try this , not tried a car, but please can you do Cura settings on all your future models, not everyone can afford the expensive simplyfi 3d . Thanks, great work as usual.

    We feel bad that you failed to print. The horn of the Stag beetle fails because the part does not stick well on the Build bed. In such cases, it is advisable to apply an adhesive-strengthening material such as <Magigoo>, <Stick glue>, or <Hair gel> to the bed. If that does not work well, use Raft. Many people are talking about slicing settings, but we use Default high quality Settings. If this default setting does not work well, slow down the print speed or increase the retraction. Actually that's all. The biggest impact on print quality is cleaning and maintenance of 3D printers. We recommend that you fine-tune your 3D printer and try again. A comment that is helpful to all users is in Comment of Foldable robot BD. It is the article of user P4RHELI4. https://fab365.net/items/122#comments This article will help you a lot. Thank you.

    At the bottom of the information is the Ender slicing setting using S3D. You can apply this section.
