Description

Summary This is an update of my previous project Watch Links with 1.75mm Filament pins. The original project was intended to be an upgraded strap/bracelet for my then wristwatch. That watch has since given up the ghost before I got around to designing a proper adapter link. This time around, it's a standalone bracelet, using neodymium disc magnets to hold the ends closed. It was kind of inspired by the Apple watch's optional magnetic band. My magnet links are designed to fit a 8mm diameter disc magnet with a height up to ~2.7-2.8 mm. Instructions I had very good results with these settings on my Bukito using PLA: 0.2mm layer height 1mm wall thickness 1mm top/bottom thickness 40mm/s print speed 180C extruder temp No support or raft needed. The disc caps should just press-fit over your disc magnet. If the fit feels too loose, feel free to reinforce with your preffered glue.
