I’m absolutely sure we can all concur that the worst time to uncover out a magnet is the erroneous way close to is immediately after glue has been utilized. With that in intellect, [erick.siders] made the parametric Magnet Placer instrument.
Buying up and positioning magnets into assemblies can be an error-vulnerable method, due to the fact magnet polarity are not able to be specifically recognized or sensed by either sight or fingertips. This tool assists by acting a lot like a suction pickup resource — push the plunger down, and a magnet can be picked up, release the plunger, and the magnet allows go. Basic, and efficient.
Since the tool is polarity-dependent (depending on which orientation the pickup magnet is mounted into the internal plunger), [erick.siders] suggests printing two equipment and shade-coding them. That way, 1 can pick out the correct instrument dependent on the problem and be confident that the magnets are ideal-facet-up, just about every time.
The instruments use a lengthy metric bolt, a magnet, and a spring, but none of those pieces are specially vital. We also like the way that the end outcome has no gaps or openings into the shifting components, which means practically nothing can get caught on or inside nearly anything throughout use or storage.
It’s a parametric style and the CAD information (in the two Fusion 360 and Step flavors) are supplied, so modification should be a breeze. And if you come about to be making use of PrusaSlicer, don’t forget you can now fall Stage structure information straight in for slicing.
