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 before scaling.
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.
