Wow, that looks really cool.hunter_something wrote: ↑Thu Mar 21, 2019 11:09 pmBecause I've got an excess of 3D printer filament, I'm going to try substituting 3D printed pillars for the wood ones. Plus that way I should be able to dial in the precision pretty well, and I won't have to deal with finishing or painting the pillars.
I've already started playing around with lengths and angles in some 3D software.
I know zilch about 3D printers, but if you were to print the platform & post as one piece, you probably wouldn't need the magnets.
If you did want to seat a magnet in the top of the post, I'd recommend grabbing a pack from Home depot (or wherever) to get an accurate measurement. There's a few different sizes of Neodymium Disc Magnets - the ones I used were 12mm (diameter) by 3mm (thickness). Then I just used Loctite gel super glue to hold them in.
