About Project

This large-scale plastic Pokeball is a 3D printed prop for a photography studio to establish a Pokemon-themed shooting scene. Regularly, FDM prints would have visible layer lines. It also can be finished to a very high standard using various post-processing methods, such as sanding and polishing, priming and painting, cold welding, vapor smoothing, epoxy coating, and metal plating.


    • Step 1: 3D print the hollowed-out Pokeball with FDM PLA. FDM is the most well-known and cost-efficient printing method. People who don’t have strict requirements of dimensions can select this technique. PLA is the most widely used plastic filament material in 3D printing. Made from fermented plant starch such as corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp, it’s safe for children.
    • Step 2: Break the supports with a needle-nose plier. Rinse the print with PVA(usually associated with PLA), then sand with sandpaper. Spray with putty and let it dry. At last, apply with priming, paints and UV-oil.
