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.

You've been waiting so long. Finally finished the A-10 'warthog' Thunderbolt II.
This plane has a slender body and wide and thick wings that are not symmetrical in many ways. So it was very difficult to put a characteristic structure. After much deliberation, I decided to make it a little bigger.

By making it bigger, I have more space, so I made structures that I had never been able to express before.
Canopy opening/closing, engine cover opening/closing, flap movement, etc. In particular, it is speculated that this is the first time in 3D to reproduce the structure of the flap that opens up and down at the same time.

It is recommended to use a brim for the wings. Otherwise, it may fall over during printing.
Created custom supports for several parts. They must be carefully removed with a knife. The side from which the support has been removed must be trimmed evenly to ensure good bonding.

Unlike the real thing, this plane is heavy at the back, so when it's finished, the front is lifted. In order to prevent this, I made a small support bar that is not actually there.

In an airplane, the left and right sides are uniquely used, and the port on the port and the starboard on the starboard are distinguished. So, I wrote down P and S for parts that are likely to be confused on the left and right (eg engine).

    Will there be a stand for this? Looks like there's a spot for it?

    I want to know if I can perm glue the gear and support strut into place.

    I love many of the FAB365 models. The F-22 Raptor is one of favorites models I've printed Anyone else though having trouble getting the ailerons for the A-10 to fit together? I have printed them in every way I can think of and I can't get the B & C parts to snap into A. Such a shame as I have the rest of the model printed and ready to go.

    could tell what settings used to print on the ender? I miss this pdf information in your templates.

    Ran into a couple minor difficulties printing this in ABS on a heavily modded Ender 3, but nothing a bit of settings-tinkering and homemade ABS glue couldn't fix! Fantastic model.

    I have a prusa mini, max 180mmx180mmx180mm

    I see one of the parts is at 190mm, is there any suggestion you make it fit? Best way to slice it?

    slice model at 90% size ? lower right corner on prusa slicer if you set the first scale factor box to 90 percent you should get it all to fit , or if you must have it larger you can use the slicers "split model" function and print it in two halves and glue together

    Has the front landing gear been added to this models files? I’ve printed everything and it’s missing the front landing gear to stand it up.

    It's a good model! (can i amend the size of this model?)

    beautifull model but man the gun on the a-10 MUST be on the center line, so it doesnt brake the whole balance of the plane while fireing.

    (this is kinda a joke, and i love this model)

    Thank you!
    Please enjoy~

    You're actually not far off. While the barrel is offset (this it to allow room for the nose landing gear to retract which is also offset), the particular barrel that is in the firing position (approx 7 o'clock position when looking at the front of the barrel assembly) actually is directly in line with the centerline of the aircraft. It's not so much for balancing as it is for aiming.

    Can i amend the size of this model?

    2022-06-03 13:07:15

    Yes, you can.
    If you print this design too small, the parts may stick together, so don't print too small. Printing large is no problem.
    Please enjoy~
