I was challenged to create a passable decorative pokeball for cosplay purposes. These components can be used to construct your own decorative Pokeballs. This kit includes simple primitive models to construct a decorative pokeball. By themselves the included models do not constitute a pokeball, some assembly required.

Included Models:
Reinforced Half Sphere
Split Flange

1.Print off two half spheres. One white, one red.
2.Print off two split flanges in black.
3.Print off one button in white.

Allow the glue to dry for each of the following steps.

4.Glue the half spheres to the split flanges.
5.Glue the opposite ends together ensuring the split flange slots line up.
6.Apply glue to the button tab then insert the tab into the slot.
7.Sand any imperfections.

wow impessive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Es la mayor mierda que he visto en mi puta vida puto pringau que te meto una ostia que te tumbo!!!!!

What was this printed off at? .3mm?

I think it was printed at .5mm but I can't be sure anymore. I'm not using the same printer as I once was.

You'll want to print 2 black splitflanges, 1 white reinforcedhalfsphere, 1 blue reinforcedhalfspehere, and one button at 105 percent size to make it fit more snugly.

Can you explain the differences between the pokeballhalfsphere.stl and the reinforcedhalfspere.stl? Did you upgrade the parts and rename them? Giving them version numbers instead might help the confusion, but perhaps you have a good reason for this naming scheme.

I'm going to print the reinforced half next to see how it compares to the pokeballhalfsphere that I just finished. Cool model for sure!
