YADIH - Yet Another Dial Indicator Holder For Replicator
by jetty, published
However, dial indicators and magnets come in different sizes.
This design is inspired and pays homage to the other holders out there, but is fully parametric to fit your needs.
You can change magnet size, dial indicator holder size, wide or narrow holder and also if you want a 2 or 4 magnets holder.

A suggestion to help with the issue with holding the magnets -- make the holes that the magnets mount through come from the top side with an internal shoulder. This is so that when the dial indicator holder is on the machine, the magnets are pulling against a plastic shoulder. Then it does not matter how much glue you put on the back -- it will not interfere with operations. Also, if I design a variant I will likely print 4 plugs and permanently install them in place over the magnets to keep them in place.
Great idea for attachment using magnets. The best holder that I printed so far. I printed also an adapter to fit my smaller diameter dial indicator. But I have trouble to attach the magnets. I have 10 and 12 mm x 1 mm magnets and when I print it the diameter appears to be 11.6mm. I cannot insert 12mm and it is too wide for 10mm. My magnets are very strong and I have trouble to hold them with glue to the holder. Maybe I will reprint it with slots to insert the magnets from the internal side and to close the open ends with glue gun.

Otherwise download the scad, change the settings, print and push in or glue the magnets in place. I printed at 50% fill for strength.
