Space X Falcon 9 Rocket

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 dragon capsule and trunk of the Space X project were loved by many 3D printer users.

Along with this, many 3D printer users have requested to make a Falcon 9 rocket with a dragon capsule up to the orbit. So I made the Falcon 9 rocket at the request of my clients.
This Falcon 9 rocket was intended to be able to connect to the previously created dragon capsule and trunk. So, it is the largest I have ever designed. So, I designed it to be printed in many parts.
In this design project, the landing leg was the biggest problem to be solved, but the piston structure was changed to a folding method because it was impossible to print in a slim shape in desktop 3D printing.
But with these changes
1. This Falcon 9 rocket can fold and unfold its landing legs and stand safely.
2. The wings can also be spread and folded.

The assembly process of this Falcon 9 rocket is as follows.
1. Fold the 4 landing legs first.
2. Connect the pipe (folding structure) that connects the landing legs and the body.
3. Glue the landing legs.
4. Attach the landing leg to the body and connect the folding pipe. When connecting pipes, connect them by pushing them at an angle perpendicular to the body.
5. Connect the landing legs to the body and fold them into the body.
6. Glue the nozzle to the bottom.
7. Attach the bodies in order. It is recommended to use adhesive.
8. Attach the cables to the body in order. We recommend using glue.
9. Put the dragon capsule and the trunk on the top to finish.

See the video for the above process.

※ Dragon capsule and trunk are not included.

Congratulations on the success of Space X, and hope that the era of the commercial space industry opens as soon as possible.

    Love the model, but would be cool if the entire mission could be reenacted with it. This would make it a great model to use in science classes. :) (Right now, the second stage doesn't have an engine ^^ )

    Thank you very much! But what means entire mission?

    Well, this rocket has 2 stages and the model only has 1 stage. In this video around 1:10 you can see the second stage kick in. Would be cool if the model also had this second stage so it's true to the real rocket. ^^

    I love it but i thing its too expensive so i did not use the crew dragon but i make my own cone for it

    Noticed some others had issues with the folding landing gear hinges. I had some issues as well and found adding a brim just 2-3mm wide helped greatly. there are thin features on the hinges that adhere to the build surface with just two widths of layers, these tend to want to curl back up away from the bed if the print settings are not perfect. Hope this helps others. Awesome model and design work!

    I bought this and the only part that doesn’t print correctly is the hinges for the fold out landing pads. It doesnt slide right. Needs to be made with more material to hold together better.

    i had the same problem i solve it by making it 50% speed and 100% infil still not super smooth and durable but its better than nothing

    I think it is because the surface of the slide part is not smooth. Increasing the Retraction helps to smooth the surface of the print. If you upload a picture, I can help you more accurately. Thank you.

    Are you going to make a fairing for this or just the dragon?

    i am working on the cone for the top i will send it to you if you want to

    We have plans for fairing. Please look forward to it.

    hi, what are the specific print settings for the legs and the leg bars? i tried printing them in a couple different methods but they dont snap in half cleanly like you do in the video. thanks

    fab365 Administrator
    2020-09-28 20:29:27

    The upper body must be joined in order for the legs to snap to the body.

    Hi, what % infill do I use? Thanks

    fab365 Administrator
    2020-09-04 11:59:34

    My infill setting is 15% I will add settings informations.

    1111 Anet A6Cura
    2020-09-27 19:12:26

    i used 100% for the bars 20% for the legs and 5% for everything else

    Two questions: 1) How well does this model scale? 1m tall is quite large. Will the folding mechanisms on the legs etc still work at 50%? 2) How heavy is the final print that you show in the photos? It looks like it uses a significant amount of filament.

    fab365 Administrator
    2020-09-02 12:30:50

    1) If your 3D printer is in good condition, even if you print it at 50% size, the landing leg will work. 2) The total weight is 590 grams for 100% scale Thanks

    How tall is a fully printed one (including the capsule and trunk)?

    fab365 Administrator
    2020-09-01 11:28:10

    About 1 m. Exactly, 103 cm. Thank you, Please enjoy~

    Hi, i love the design. Could you please informed us about what PLA you printed it with? I`m referings to Brand and color-name I really like the color you used and want to make sure i have the same color available when i have time to buy and print this beauty. Thanks

    fab365 Administrator
    2020-08-31 02:38:17

    I used korean brand PLA. So I guess similar color for dark parts is Esun grey, or fiberlogy graphite. The bright will be good for Fiberlogy grey, or Paramount prototype grey. Simply said, Light grey/white and Dark grey/silver PLA is good. Please enjoy~
