NOTE: You can check my newest designs in my YouMagine profile! More Low-Poly and other simple designs!


Designing a low-poly Pokemon is the best way I found to represent the poor graphic quality the first Pokemon games had. So, here I present you the low-poly Charmander, which is part of the Low-Poly project I'm developing.
3D printers allow to make real the idea of catching all Pokemon, and I'm currently working to make all the Pokemon I can. You can check the collection in the following page:


This model is 5cm tall approximately. The model from the picture was printed with a Prusa i3, 0.2mm layer height, 0.5mm nozzle, 45mm/s speed and a cooling fan (I really recommend this!). The material is 3mm high quality PLA.

It was designed so it doesn't need support material, although each printer is different and it may be more difficult to print it depending on the settings.

I turned your Charmander into a Charmeleon. :) Hope you like it.

Low-Poly Charmeleon

Six months ago I lost my job and after that I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a great website which literally saved me. I started working for them online and in a short time after I've started averaging 15k a month... The best thing was that cause I am not that computer savvy all I needed was some basic typing skills and internet access to start... This is where to start


And I'm just sitting here designing Low-Poly Pokemon for free.

hahahaha que boludo!

There is something wrong with the .stl file. I printed it out and it was all support material. When I ran the .stl through Netfabb's .stl repairer the print came out fine.

I love this! I made one but the tail fell off so I made another but the tail fell off again. I would love to have a Charmander to go with my Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Pikachu. His tail keeps breaking or falling off. Could you try and strengthen it a little bit so that is less likely to happen. Other than that I think the design comes out amazing.

Which 3D printer are you using? Material? Layer height? I'm asking this because I've printed millions of charmander, and the printing settings are really important to make the tail more resistant!

Very very nice model. I can't like it enough!

With the release of 4 new colors of the Z-ULTRAT filament by Zortrax, we bring you a quick look at the possibility 3D printing has in the toy industry. This is where imagination meets reality. With a 3D printer in your home, you can literally catch 'em all.

Check out our video on the great work done by Flowalistik's low poly Pokemon below.


Can't wait to... "literally" get our hands on more of your work!!!

Is it made of plastine

What, the model from the picture? It's 3d printed!

what software are you using?

Soon to be leaving thingiverse because of Makerbot's behavior towards open source.

Nice, but make its face and body smoother anyways it is awesome man

Hey FLOWALISTIK! I made the charmander just a few minutes age and most of it looks fantastic! Although, just like the squirtle, the only bad part is basically his crotch. Im using a prusa i3 no support with a .4 nozzle. I had a perimeters set to 2 and a .25 layer height and my speed was 45mm/s for everything. Do you kow what I could do to make mine look more like yours? Thanks!

I just uploaded another design with little modifications (it's called "lowerpart") trying to fix some problems where the legs and the tail connects. I hope this is enough, but as I said, every printer is different and the things I print correctly may print not so well in your printed. Also, I print with PLA 185ºC and with a fan cooling down the plastic (I think the fan makes the difference in terms of printing without support material, as it makes the platic to solidify faster).
