Summary

Here's a pokeball I made for a friend, with the goals of being as accurate and easy-to-print as possible. It uses 4 separate parts that can be easily printed and painted, then assembled with or without glue.

The outer diameter is 10 centimeters before scaling.

Instructions

NOTE: There are three versions of this model: the 0.1 mm tolerance version is recommended for a snug, glue-less assembly. The 0.3 mm version is highly recommended if you plan on scaling down the model. A legacy version is also available if you need to replace any parts you printed prior to 2015-02-20.

  • Print two outer shells, one inner ring, and one button.

  • Paint the pieces separately.

  • Assemble with or without some weights inside (screws, nuts, ball bearings, etc...). You can also use crumpled paper to stop the weights from rattling. Glue is optional.

I printed this about 2 weeks ago and it is awesome! With sanding and painting it looks soooooo real. It is air tight also!

I printed a smaller version, check it out! Also could you please model a Master ball? I would love to print one out so this little guy had company :P

Thanks for trying it out! I have more Pokeballs planned; give me a few weeks for a Master ball, and expect even more some time after that.
