ABOUT THIS 3D MODEL

It's hard to overstate how big of an impact the legendary manga and anime by Katsuhiro Otomo has had upon popular culture worldwide. The 1988 action film AKIRA is widely regarded as a landmark in Japanese animation and a pivotal film for the growth in popularity of manga and anime in the Western world. The global anime hit spurred the cyberpunk genre, greatly influenced the art in the anime world, and set the scene for more big anime franchises! The film’s phenomenal animation, cyberpunk themes, and remarkable soundtrack made AKIRA a household name among the creators of all genres, and 3D artists are no exception.

The blazing-red futuristic motorcycle ridden by the AKIRA hero Shotaro Kaneda has become a well-established iconic feature of the franchise and now, thanks to the mastery of our contributing author, “Akira Bike” was made accessible to all 3D printing enthusiasts. The aesthetically advanced bike for 3D printing boasts outstanding technological and design features that are waiting to be developed for your collection. After all, who wouldn’t want to get down to recreating the cult bike slide scene that will unlikely cease to be used and homaged again and again in animation and pop culture? 

ADAPTATION FOR 3D PRINTING

Akira Bike 3D printing model is an action assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took Gambody team 49 hours in total. In order to preserve the accurate likeness of the motorcycle, the model was divided into many parts that are to be assembled as if a real vehicle. 

Taking into account the willingness of our customers to make their 3D printing projects as true to life as possible, Gambody team worked on the highly-articulated assembly of the vehicle that presupposes active suspension of the Shotaro Kaneda’s Bike. Thus, various special mechanisms were introduced into the model to make sure that the parts comprising the suspensions, as well as the details of the body, are authentic and functional (please, see "Versions' specifications", "Assembly video" and photo preview slider). 

Moreover, the model was divided into as many assembly parts as needed to ensure the cleanest 3D printing result possible and to minimize the amount of material needed to print the generated support, e.g. the motorcycle’s handlebar, kickstand, windshield, pedals, review mirrors, seat, disk covers, etc. come as separate STL files

All assembly parts are provided in STL files in recommended positions that were worked out in order to ensure the smoothness of the details’ surfaces after printing and so that the 3D printing beginners won't face difficulties when placing the parts on a build plate. We highly recommend that you watch "Assembly video" in the photo preview section before assembling the Akira Bike. 

The model is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers. All STL files for 3D printing have been checked in Netfabb and no errors were shown.

The model's scale was calculated from the length of the Akira Bike which is 2947 mm. The 3D printing model's chosen scale is 1:8 for the FFF/FDM version and 1:16 for the DLP/SLA/SLS version.
