Foldable Tank TIGER-I Late production

$ 5.49



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 time, I finally challenged the tank. Yes, it is a foldable tank. The first selected model was the German Tiger-1 late model, well known in World War II.

Since almost every detail has been expressed, just looking at it will give you great pleasure.
As with other designs, this design has a lot of moving parts, especially wheels, so it is necessary to adjust the height of the nozzle well so that the gaps do not stick when printing the first layer.
In particular, the most important thing to note when printing this design is to print the Track / caterpillar. Pay attention to the print of the first layer so that the Track / caterpillars do not stick together.

The process of folding this design is as follows.
1. Fold the front part first. Since the living hinge is used, fold it carefully and slowly so as not to break it.
2. Insert the side part with wheels on the front part and the top part. Check and fit each protrusion and hole.
3. Insert the rest of the side part. The body has been completed.
4. Connect the two tracks / caterpillars first.
5. Wind the track / caterpillar around the wheel. There is a change in shape, and the non-simple side is the outside of the track / caterpillar.
6. Fit the start and end parts of the track / caterpillar.
7. Put the cannon on the turret.
8. Glue the small parts on the back.

    I bought the Fab365 T34-85 and have printed it with scale 1:1. What scale of Tiger-I late tank should I print so that ratio of sizes of the two models is the same as the real-life ratio? In real-life, the two tanks have similar length (6m68 and 6m31) but in your models, the Tiger-I late seems to be larger than the T34-85. Thanks for your advice.

    We checked size with comparison.
    It's not very accurate, but I've put some data together and made it as 1:48 scale as possible.

    Awesome model
    printed everything only have one problem
    the tracks are falling apart

    Used the mk3 profile from this site sadly no effect
    used different orientations no effect
    checked the default extrusion and its .4

    I fixed it by putting the extrusion multiplier on 1.1

    @palko_138502 We are happy that the output was successful.

    If there is any problem with the printing, please let us know the problem with the picture at

    Слишком свободные звенья у гусениц как настроить в Cure

    2020-12-28 10:58:39

    @VIRUS 1) Use Line Width: 0.4mm
    2) Use Layer Height: 0.1mm
    3) If there is a problem even when applying 1) 2) then use Flow: 120%

    2020-12-30 11:11:52

    Большое спасибо настройки помогли только гусеницы слишком в натяжение были пришлось добавить одно звено чтоб немного посвободнее было.

    How you print the turret?, I have a tronxy xy 2 and is dificult to make small cylinder type parts.

    I'm having trouble with the treads. The links connecting them are too weak, they disintegrate when I try to put them on the tank.

    My printer is a Prusa i3 mk3.

    Hi rogaldorn.
    Have you seen fab365's print tips page?

    Or could you please post a picture? If you upload a picture, we can suggest a more accurate solution.

    Some parts of the tack are pretty good and require quite a bit of effort to take apart, while others seem to just fall apart from each other. If I had to guess, I would say there could be more material in the interlocking links of the track. Maybe under extrusion? The other parts, like the Hull and Turret print fine.

    I did look through the tips and tricks. I believe my bed is as level as I can make it. I've done the nylok mod and my bed variance is fairly low. The bed adhesion is good, nothing is lifting during the print and it takes a little effort to remove the print when done.

    I did notice I had 'detect thin walls' checked in my print settings. I'll uncheck it and try printing a single track, and also try 90 degree orientation from the default to see if that helps.

    My filament is SUNLU Gray (X002CWQ013), 210C/60C. 0.4mm Nozzle, 0.2mm layer height.

    That seemed to fix my problem. I aligned the tracks going in the X-axis on the build plate instead of in the Y. They fit great and thanks for such a great model. Do you have any plans to expand to other tank models? I'd love to see more, like the Panther, Sherman, Wolverine, Churchill, SU-85s, IS-3, KV-2, Etc etc.

    2020-11-23 09:37:17

    We are happy to have your problem resolved.
    Put your tank on request and get people's vote.

    And... the M4 Sherman is coming.

    Most default extrusion width is 0.45mm in Prusa slicer.
    If your nozzle diameter is 0.4mm, this setting is not good.
    So you have to change extrusion width to 0.4mm

    If changing the settings like this does not solve the problem, try increasing the Extrusion multiplier.

  • fab365

    If the tracks become loose, Simplify 3D users should make sure the Extrusion Width is Auto.
    It should be Manual/0.4mm.
