These models were designed to display Pokémon cards. The card in the stand is tilted back slightly and the area in front of the card is meant for displaying a 3D representation of the Pokemon. It is not directly in front of the card to not obstruct view of it. You can have a look at our Low Poly Pokémon collection if you’d like some models to with it.
The black layers on the top which help separate the Pokémon with contrast are done using a color change in the slicer as described below.
The stands have Pokémon energy types stamped into them but there is also a blank version that doesn’t have any symbol on it. Energy types: Fire, Water, Lightning, Fighting, Psychic, Colorless, Darkness, Metal, Dragon and Fairy
There are two size versions of holes for the cards. One for 3″ X 4″ Toploaders and the other is for PSA cases which are bigger.
At 100% scale the model’s dimensions are approximately:
Width 206 mm
Length 102 mm
Height 8 mm
Can be turned diagonally to fit 170 mm print beds.
3D printing settings we used:
Layer height 0.2 mm
0 bottom layers
Infill 9% Triangles (because of the low infill we set a single solid layer to print on the layer where the type symbol starts printing because it wasn’t bridging it well enough.
To change the color for the top black layers you can use PrusaSlicers color change function or you can open any g-code in a text editor and add the code M600 before the layer where you want the change to occur. Top 2 layers should be black to ensure even coverage.
If you want the top solid infill to be aligned with the edges then set it to a 46.6° angle.
If you have a spotless printing surface you might want to print the stand upside down and have a glossy finish (the type symbol will bridge easily without supports).
Printing settings will vary greatly depending on your specific printer.
The single color stands were printed with Fillamentum PLA and the rainbow version was printed with Sunlu Rainbow Silk PLA.
Do you like the model and don’t have a 3D printer? There are lots of people who offer 3D printing services these days. Try searching for someone who offers them in your area.
