GOODesign

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 foldable car series is experimenting with the limitations of the structure that can be realized with foldable car and introduces a new structure every time. This folding car was produced by DeLorean MOTOR COMPANY, but it is a misfortune car, Delorean, which has been discontinued due to a lot of defects and financial failures of the body. Although the car has failed, it is still popular among people, with many appearing in movies and games.

The first thing that I had to worry about when designing this car in a folding way was that of a Gull-wing door. After a long printing experiment, the inside of the door was designed to be printed using the bridge phenomenon. And I made a locking device so that the door can be locked in the open state. This car was particularly popular because it appeared as a time machine in the movie . So we have designed various structures to turn into Time Machine.
It is the structure of the wheel which produced the most time. The wheels can rotate sideways while they roll. Engine room with double cover structure is designed to be removable from outside engine room cover so that time machine can be replaced. However, the engine room cover on the inside can be opened and closed without being assembled.

If there are loose parts except moving parts, it is recommended to glue them.

※ This design is not recommended for people with a lot of moving parts and not a lot of 3D printing experience.
※ Print as large as possible to get better results.

    Can this model (or others from store) be printed on LCD SLA printer? And is there any changes for model required?

    You videos show that you used no raft or anything. Would I be fine to print with no build support and be ok with petg? Thank you I want to try this today.

    I printed this out with Inland PLA at 20% infill and it came out very stiff so I could not make the car fold without it breaking.. There is no cura profile for this print, do you have recommended settings?

    Could you make a variant from BTTF 3 with the train wheels? I have a garden railroad on 45mm gauge track. I'll be willing to commission the modification.

    Does anybody knows if can be scaled down and if yes how much ? Thank you and happy new year

    @CrossMX
    Scale down is possible, but the exact ratio may vary depending on the printer type.
    It is recommended to print by adjusting the ratio yourself.

    I bought this file hoping to get the connections to modify it into the time machine version. I have seen pictures but not files. Is there any way for me to get those?

    It's funny that there is no "DMC" logo, but the "FAB 365" logo is repeated as many as 5 times on one model. Well at least, not on the hood.

    The front radiator is too small to put DMC logo on it.
