I’ve been following Andrew Kim’s journal/portfolio minimally minimal on and off for probably about a year. It’s probably a little creepy to admit that as I’m sure he had no idea, and now here I am writing about him. What makes his journal so great is that he posts a lot of his own personal work, much like the Honda N2 he created that you see above, and it absolutely needs to be shared.
From what I gathered in his post, he needed to learn SolidWorks, which is a computer modeling program. He took apart an entire RC car, measure all the parts and rebuilt it digitally, he deserves major props for that effort alone. Learning how to create complex parts, he decided to design a model car, and print it out using a 3D printer.
The finished product is a beauty. He went so far to include details like functioning doors, retractable roof, the hood opens (and has it’s own stick), upholstery on the seats and even a tiny Honda symbol on the steering wheel. As usual, I can’t wait to see what Andrew comes up with next, I’m sure he’ll continue to make astounding projects. Be sure to check out the images below to see more shots and visit his portfolio for even more goodness.
