Amazing! Just ordered the magnets and can't wait to print this for my little one, she is going to have a blast. Thanks for sharing the design!

VERY cool. Was about to buy another set for my son and thought...i'll just 3D print some. Now onto my question:

"Make sure that you're using Diamentrically Magnetized magnets,"

By using those suggested magnets, the magnet would always be able to move around with the "holder" of said magnet. Wouldn't it then retract sometime and attract other times depending on if the magnet rotated?

Good question. The magnets fit loosely in the holes, so they can rotate in the holes and auto align with another nearby magnet. This is how the store bought ones work too.
