Easy-Print Pokeball by Stact13 May 5, 2013


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.

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.

Maybe could you add a way to open it

can't wait to print it!!!!

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.
