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 M1A2 Abrams tank had many requests from customers, and I wanted to make it too, but its shape and structure made it difficult to design in my style (Print-in-place articulated). The difficult parts were solved by printing a few main parts, including the turret, separately.

When making the body by folding, make sure to check the positions of the holes and protrusions before making the body.
It is better to use a rubber material such as TPU for the tires of the wheel.
It is recommended to attach the parts attached to the turret after understanding the photos and locations.
If the wheel does not rotate well, apply sewing machine oil or grease to it and it will roll well.

    A little help. I'm color blind so can you tell me what color filament you used for the main tank and the tracks?

    Haven't printed this yet, but as a former M1A1 gunner, ect., I will definitely be doing that.

    Couple questions. Would you consider an optional TC hatch that's open instead of closed? Also, there isn't a .50 cal for the TC. I imagine it would be pretty flimsy but just wanted to throw it out there.

Notice !
