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.

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.

No results.

i have printed a lot of these now and the jaw/ under mouth part looks like a brain or something it is saggy and not that great otherwise cool model


I just started a YouTube channel focusing on functional prints and featured two of your models (with credit of course). I know your Pokemon designs aren't in and of themselves functional but I explain that in the video. If you wanted to check it out here's the link.

I wouldn't go over 15% for this

Where is the Cyndaquill of your collection?

When I print this 0 infill 3 walls with a cooling fan 195mm tall it prints fine but makes the front completely flat. No nose or face or arms. How do I fix this?

Thanks, Jake

Can you also print this with 2-3 percent infill without it failing too?

Printing a large one right now! :) Will update on progress

I've tried to print this but when the software sends the file in the printer, it cuts the charmander in 3 parts and so it's impossible to print! It's very weird because i haven't got any problems with pikachu. Someone has an idea ? (I have a XYZ printing Da Vinci Mini and I use XYZWare)

In the interests of protecting your work, here's someone selling your model.

SO COOL. charmander was my first pokemon

Made one out of concrete, but the flame broke of :(

Just printed it and it came out excellent, of course. GREAT model!

What software and printer did you use?

best charmander ever bro.

Can this be printed at 0% infill? would love to know

Use 15% infill and a raft you scrub, it works really well.

Hi Mr. Swanson,

I've printed some of them without infill, and I've got results with thick walls (1.2-1.6mm) and no infill. I would recommend at least 5% infill to avois any problems, but it all depends on the printer settings (cooling fans!).


0% infill works great! "spiral Vase" mode almost works as well, cute one!


The part under the mouth ALWAYS sags and gets ugly. I think the overhang is just a little too much.

what do you use to design your models? They look very professional.

I turned your Charmander into a Charmeleon. :) Hope you like it.

And I'm just sitting here designing Low-Poly Pokemon for free.

There is something wrong with the .stl file. I printed it out and it was all support material. When I ran the .stl through Netfabb's .stl repairer the print came out fine.

Could you post the fixed version? I've the same problem with Simplify3D and Slic3r...

I love this! I made one but the tail fell off so I made another but the tail fell off again. I would love to have a Charmander to go with my Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Pikachu. His tail keeps breaking or falling off. Could you try and strengthen it a little bit so that is less likely to happen. Other than that I think the design comes out amazing.

Which 3D printer are you using? Material? Layer height? I'm asking this because I've printed millions of charmander, and the printing settings are really important to make the tail more resistant!

Very very nice model. I can't like it enough!

With the release of 4 new colors of the Z-ULTRAT filament by Zortrax, we bring you a quick look at the possibility 3D printing has in the toy industry. This is where imagination meets reality. With a 3D printer in your home, you can literally catch 'em all.

Check out our video on the great work done by Flowalistik's low poly Pokemon below.


Can't wait to... "literally" get our hands on more of your work!!!

Is it made of plastine

What, the model from the picture? It's 3d printed!

what software are you using?

Soon to be leaving thingiverse because of Makerbot's behavior towards open source.

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).
