Hi Doc :) You have inspired me to create my own version of these. I have been working on a part like this in secret, but now that my printer is finally running a bit better with the new hotend I am ready to start prototyping :)
Nice work here!
I printed these 9 at a time on my solidoodle2 at .3mm to use teach some 3rd graders about magnets. I ended up with 36 in the end. I found that if I stopped the print before it printed the last layer I could get the magnets in easier and they still would not fall out. The teacher loved them so much she wanted to know where she could buy some for the class! I gave them to her so that future classes could make use of them.

Then press a spherical 5mm rare earth magnet into each chamber. You should have to press pretty hard to get the magnet in, and once inside it should be able to freely rotate. This lets the polarities automagically align.
The more pieces you print the more shapes you can make. Enjoy!
