Magnetic Rack for 8, 1.5mL Tubes
by acadey, published
I updated this model with a different base (it now has more room for you to look at the beads when pipetting) and also a version where the tube grabbers are printed without an overhang as per suggestion in comments.
Also if you are a grad student and are trying to convince your PI to buy a 3D printer - making just a few of these more than pays for the printer itsself!
EDIT: Added sketchup files for the 8 & 4 tube versions. Also a user made the comment about the direction of the magnets. It may be better to use these: kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=B842 instead, though it is currently untested.

Sorry for the delayed response - I uploaded the sketchup files (where I designed them) Hopefully this will help.
Hi acadey, love your design of the magnetic stand and am about to order some magnets. Why did you go for the side to side magnets http://www.kjmagnetics.com/pro... rather than the top on top magnets http://www.kjmagnetics.com/pro... and does it make a difference? Also, they have the top to top magnets in a higher strength (B52), do you think that will improve the stand? Cheers!
