While you’ll have no problem finding numerous 3D prints of the Pokémon in Pokémon Go, maker projects focused on the app itself are more difficult to come by.
Maker Richard Shreve has fixed that with this physical recreation of the Raid Pass. Shreve tells us that he started on the project when raids were announced and before he even had a 3D printer, designing the rough model in Tinkercad.
After getting a 3D printer for Christmas, he continued with the model in Fusion 360 and spent a month revising the design and test printing it as he went along.
The final version in the gallery below took around eight hours to print measuring in at 124 X 69 X 12 millimetres. Black PLA was used to cut down on the amount of paint used with the accents were done with spray primer and spray paint. Final detailing was done with a Sharpie.
The lighting is courtesy of LEDs salvaged from Christmas lights powered by some button batteries with the cover acting as a switch. Shreve hopes someone will take his design and use an Adafruit NeoPixel Jewel as he intended to at the start of the project.
If you’d like to give that a shot, the files to print it are available from Thingiverse. This version is the EX Raid Pass, but you could easily make the premium or free versions with different colours of filament or paint.
