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 is a foldable VW Beetle that many people have requested me. The model I referenced is the 1949 model. I also like the VW Beetle very much, but in the meantime my skill wasn't good enough to design this complex form in a fold. But with the continued development of skill, it is now possible to produce this design.
This design opens the hood and the trunk in two parts. The car is a rear engine (Rear engine, rear-wheel drive) structure, with the engine behind it. So you can open the rear trunk to open the engine room and open the front hood to see the spare tires and other compartments.

※ We recommend to use the Raft, if object does not stick well to your 3D printer bed / plate. Especially the hood and engine cover are easy to fall off.
※ Please be very careful about hood and engine cover.
The bumper is well fixed with the use of glue.

    Why is there a giant gap on the bottom? The top and sides go together fine, but the bottom doesn’t come together. There’s a huge gap.

    I finally figured out you need to squeeze the wheels on both sides to close the gap.

    Thank you for your opinion. In your case, the edges of the print are slightly curved, which is caused by the rise of the bed. Please make sure all parts are securely attached to the floor during the printing process.

    Hi, I printed this 2x this week and got the same print error on both that the trunk lid became loose and didn't finish printing properly. The lid was loose even still connected to the raft and I suspect it wiggled around which is why I had a small spaghetti mess on top of it. In the other images you can see what the other post is talking about with the skin resolution. Print Specs: Ender 3 Pro Cura 4.4.0 0.3 Noz at 0.16 print 200 noz, 60 bed. I used the CR-10 settings in the model notes. This model folds the best out of all the models i've bought on here so far. I have used meshmixer and isolated the trunk lid and am printing that separately now. I'll glue it in place. .pb

    In your photo, the body of the car was attached to the Raft well, but the engine cover appeared to fall off the raft during printing. Please reduce the air gap a little. Thank you for your posting.

    I bought this model and printed it. I like it. But I wish it would have a better quality skin. I don't like those lines.

    Thank you for purchasing and printing. Can you tell me in detail what line you are talking about? Think about it in the next design.
