3D model description

These are super easy to make and I thought they would be a great project to get anyone to start creating their own models. I challenge anyone who HASN'T made their own model to follow along and model one of these. If you don't have your own 3d printer I will print the magnet you make just send me the file of your magnet icon and I will send you pictures to post up. I am just trying to show how low the barrier to entry really is.

I made a video about how to get Fusion 360 and make a calibration cube and another video of how to make these magnets with any icon you want.

First get Fusion 360 It's free and really powerful.
Second, download / save the squircle
Third, download some icons. I used icomoon.io

There are 900+ other icons at fontawesome but a little more involved with the download and extracting stuff

These are the magnets I use to make mine http://amzn.to/2Fann3i (affiliate link)
