Foldable Star ship Enterprise




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.

This design was created in commemoration of exceeding 10,000 registered users. That's the Enterprise, the spaceship featured in the movie Star Trek. The Enterprise has several designs, but this time it was the first one in the series.

The shape of this spaceship is very simple, but its structure is difficult to reproduce with 3D printing. Despite the use of two slide structures, I had no choice but to use the support structure.

The folding order is as follows:

1. Remove the support of the propulsion unit.
2. Rotate the disc shaped primary hull and fit it on the protrusion of the vertical connection part.
3. The secondary hull of the middle cylindrical shape slides into place.
4. Fold and insert the front part of the secondary hull to fix it.
5. The propulsion unit slides backwards to remove the protruding support and folds the front part.
6. Print the stand without support and insert it into the hole in the bottom center of the Enterprise.

We've created a support that can be easily removed, so there's no need to set up support.
The disc-shaped primary hull may fall during printing, so please be careful with the build bed / plate adhesion. You can also use Raft.

Please refer to the following video for the folding process.

    Congratulations This model are astonish. I have a cheapper printer but i still made a nice piece. I used prusa slicer and printed in PLA with 0.2mm

    2020-03-09 11:46:03

    Your print looks very good~ Thank you for your print and sharing your printing experiences. Happy 3D printing~

    Nice model, but having trouble printing on CR-10S Pro sliced with S3D, can you share the settings for this combination?

    2020-03-09 11:48:53

    Thank you. It would be easy for me to help you if you showed me the pictures.

    Thanks for the model! However what's the difference between Pedestal A and B? I can't quite figure it out.

    2019-10-07 15:55:33

    I have this same question also. I can't tell them apart.

    2019-10-17 02:26:58

    from what I noticed pedestal b sits at angle and a seems flat

    2020-03-09 11:47:36

    A pedestal A is flat, B is angled. Thank you evinrude1914.

    How do you change the FSB 365 to NCC-1701

    2019-09-06 21:19:11

    Forget it I see it now LOL Thanks Going to print it this weekend

    2019-09-15 14:20:35

    Thank you! We hope you enjoy!

    2019-09-27 04:54:15

    I can't seem to figure out how to replace the FAB365 with NCC-1701 :-(

    2019-09-27 12:03:21

    When you fold this and finish, the blast furnace goes back to the bottom of the plane. See the video.

    I can not get the engines on the side to slide forward. They are stuck in there really good. I tried digging out some of the filament around the long parts but it won't budge. I tried S3D on a Prusa MK2S

    2019-09-15 14:22:19

    I guess because of strings. Use more retractions please.

    Awesome! I print it this night. :-)

    2019-09-05 02:09:50

    Thank you~ Please enjoy~

    Is it possible to get the piedestal as several STL files so i cant print it in multi-color? I would like to print it in something like the attached image

    2019-09-05 02:10:55

    Now we don't have that plan.

    2019-09-13 03:42:29

    Even the current model can be printed in two colors using the Height range Modifier (Prusaslicer 2.1 RC). You can assign different colors to the defined layers range.

    2019-09-15 14:22:51

    Wow~ that is awesome idea~ Thank you~
