I’m positive we are able to all agree that the worst time to seek out out a magnet is the fallacious manner round is after glue has been utilized. With that in thoughts, [erick.siders] created the parametric Magnet Placer tool.
Picking up and putting magnets into assemblies could be an error-prone course of, as a result of magnet polarity can’t be instantly recognized or sensed by both sight or fingertips. This instrument helps by appearing rather a lot like a suction pickup instrument — press the plunger down, and a magnet could be picked up, launch the plunger, and the magnet lets go. Simple, and efficient.
Since the instrument is polarity-dependent (relying on which orientation the pickup magnet is mounted into the inner plunger), [erick.siders] suggests printing two instruments and color-coding them. That manner, one can select the appropriate instrument primarily based on the state of affairs and be assured that the magnets are right-side-up, each time.
The instruments use an extended metric bolt, a magnet, and a spring, however none of these elements are notably important. We additionally love the best way that the tip consequence has no gaps or openings into the transferring elements, which suggests nothing can get caught on or inside something throughout use or storage.
It’s a parametric design and the CAD information (in each Fusion 360 and STEP flavors) are offered, so modification needs to be a breeze. And if you happen to occur to be utilizing PrusaSlicer, remember you can now drop STEP format files directly in for slicing.
