Low-Poly Charmander by FLOWALISTIK May 7, 2014


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 from the spanish store Printed Dreams (http://www.printeddreams.es)
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.

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).
