Good point - edited accordingly.
Looking forward to seeing some of your designs! I know the feeling... I have a backlog of post-ables too. In time, in time.
I've been developing some designs that use internal magnets (I'm... a bit behind on posting), but they're coming from OpenSCAD scripts that echo out the heights where the pauses are needed.
Come to think of it, for your model you could just post the height at which the capping occurs, since Sailfish's pause-at-z feature appears to stop immediately before the layer that contains the entered height (so how it's sliced shouldn't matter).

Give a Shout Out
The cavities meant to hold the magnets begin to be capped off at a height 3.34mm above the base plane (assuming you're orienting as I did for printing). That should help you decide where to pause... but do double check, as there are sometimes tricks about starting elevations, etc., depending on the slicer settings. (Thanks, Austin!)
The magnets are neodymium, very strong, 0.5" diameter x 0.1" thick disks.
