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.

In the meantime, there have been numerous requests for us to make airplanes. However, due to the nature of the shape of the airplane, there are many thin parts, so printing and assembly are difficult. So while designing other things, I continued to explore the possibilities. And I decided that I had accumulated enough experience and know-how, so I finally made it.

A Dauntless SBD dive bomber that was very successful in defeating the Japanese at the Battle of Midway.

The difficult part in designing this plane was to assemble it separately so that the angle of the flaps on the wing could be changed. For this I made small custom supports on the wings and flaps. These supports can be easily removed with pliers or cutting nippers. However, if these supports are not completely removed, the wings and flaps will not be connected, so please be careful that the supports are completely removed. It would be nice to trim it using a cutter.

There are a few caveats to printing and assembling this plane.
1. If you apply excessive force while connecting the flap, it may break. When printing the flap, it is recommended to set the infill to 100% and print very strongly.
2. It is recommended that the flap be fixed at the desired angle with adhesive.
3. To prevent the wheels from swinging, I made a clip that the original plane didn't have, so if you put it on, the wheels will not swing.

Please refer to the video for the printing and assembly process.

We wish you a lot of love for this first 3D printed airplane we designed.

    I am considering buying this, but i need it smaller. Will it scale down? How small can i scale it without messing things up?

    I love the Dauntless model, but I'm having an issue with slicing the wing. In both Prusa Slicer and Canvas the custom support on the trailing edge of the wing does not show up in the slice. Wall thickness maybe? If I scale to 150% the support shows up. See sliced image from Prusa Slicer. Printer MK3S, .2 mm layer height, .4mm nozzle.

    You should set extrusion with all to 0.4mm.
    I don't understand why they set like that.
    Please enjoy!

    Thank you, that did solve the problem. Please be aware that Prusa Slicer default widths in the standard MK3S profile are set to .45mm
