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 glue. You'll probably need support for the outer shells, but the rest might be printable without, depending on your printer and settings.

Assembled version included for reference, not to print.

-Print two outer shells, and one of the inner ring and button.

-Paint the pieces separately.

-Assemble with some weights inside (various screws and hardware, ball bearings, etc...), depending on how heavy you want it to be. You can use something such as crumpled up paper to stop it from being a shaker.

-Glue it together. I use epoxy because I love the stuff, but I'm sure there's less potent glues that will work.

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

<p>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</p>

<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.</p>
