This is the second and probably final version of my PokéGrinder, I started with a remix of the models by LiquidCyberSquid and GuerrillaCaterpillar (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:732451 & https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1682040)
I made everything again from scratch.
Now you can customize your PokéGrinder with your favorite Type and Style, for lot's of different combinations:
- 5 Pokeball (first generation ones)
- 7 Types (first card generation ones)
- 4 Style for the other side of the grinder
For a grand total of 140 possible different PokéGrinders!
You will need some magnets for the intended best result:
The magnet are needed to keep the pokeball in one piece when you take it, it's just a nice touch to it. not entirely needed but it helps
Here's a link for reference, It's an Amazon affiliated link, and these are the one that I use
Here You can find the first version, now outdated
I won't publish here all the types and styles of pokéball, i'm sorry, I will try to sell this!
Wish me luck!
UPDATE 2019/04/19: Just updated the STL files, i've tested all of them and i made the right adjustment, now you won't need a single drop of glue and you won't need to file anything, everything should snap in place, at least me and my half broken 3D printer had no problem printing and assembling it! :D
If you downloaded the file before this date i suggest you to redownload the new ones, i'm sorry for the trouble
"Unboxing" of this easter egg with build instructions
I suggest you to print the inner shells at 0.3 resolution and the outer shells at 0.2
While the button and the two part of the grinder at 0.1 resolution.
For the optimal tradeoff between quality and printing time.
The supports are needed only for the outer shell and for the top grinding part, all other parts are fine without supports, for those two parts i really don't see how to print them without support.
You may want to try to print without support the outer shell, there's only one layer that needs it and for the size of it you might probably be fine without the supports
The top grinding part is not that easy to print without supports, due to the hole in the middle for the magnet.
There are 3 ways to avoid this: a single layer without the hole that you later will have to remove in the middle,
remove the magnet slot entirely (it's really easy to edit the model, go for it) but in my opinion with the magnet this pokeball is way cooler,
2 layers designed as follows: the first one has a vertical slot, large like the hole, a second layer with slot vertical to the first one, than the circle, and you should be fine, but the heights of these two layers really depends on the resolution you want to print this, so i won't upload any of these solutions
All the part should snap quite easily, make sure to clean the part and be sure that everything is nicely polished before you assemble this, 'cause afterward it will be really hard to take these pieces apart.
For the magnets there are two holes under the two grinding parts.
Just push them inside and you're good
