Magnetic holders for Solidoodle2 glass bed

Best results so far: gasket silicone but I'd guess most any silicone type of glue would work. Not as strong of a bond as room-temperature superglue, but doesn't become weak at elevated temp. So far seems to be OK with the freeze cycling as well.
Tried gorilla glue, not any better for me. Going to make larger surface area for the glass side, since my glass piece is larger anyway.
Oi, I have to respond that I've had bad luck with Cyanoacrylate form, at least in the liquid kind. I might print out a larger version of the glass pieces so I can increase the contact area. But I think it's because I take the glass off and like to put it in the freezer to help the pieces pop off. The one glass piece I did that on basically lost all connection points (I'm using four mounts) within two prints. Then I've also used one that I just air-cooled for a while, and that lost 1 after several prints, and not another after a few more. So not much luck for me with liquid super glue.
Since super glue is so much easier that two part epoxy, I think I will still stick with single component glues. But my next shot might be some expanding gorilla glue.

Make sure you have a glass bed that is 15x17cm at least in order to have some room to glue the plastic bits.
Screw the _bed parts into the solidoodle bed at opposite sides (eg top-left and bottom-right) and glue the _glass parts below the glass (again, be careful to mount them on the correct sides).
For extra strength, use 4 holders instead of 2, but I find that 2 are enough if the magnets are reasonably strong.
Note: I'm now using this system instead of the holders that I previously published here: thingiverse.com/thing:37081
