I’m not good at math, consequently not good in geometry either. But in 3DPrinting math is used all the time, and Low Poly models are no different. Low Poly models mean that the model has fewer triangles in its geometry. Making it simple and easy to generate G-Codes and print.

Today I will dig the holes of my favorites models websites and give you some models to print and decorate your house. =D

This post is inspired by a friend of mine that started a Facebook page called: Low Poly Ideas, and printed some low poly skulls and sell with cactus:

Shall we begin?

When you search on Thingiverse about Low Poly models, the first results will be the Pokemón models by Augustin Flowalistik.

You have Pikachu, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charmander and others low poly models that you can print and start your Pokemón Journey.

A thing about Low Poly is that I think that is easier to make a finishing, like sanding and painting, since they have fewer details.


Back to the Pokemón World, we have a Mew, designed by Hairald. To be true with you, I loved the color and quality of the pink mew on that photo. The quality is amazing.
