A remix of ModernGnome's great little Gecko model to be used as a fridge magnet. One of my kids loves putting things on the fridge, and loves my super strong neodymium magnets, and loves 3D printing, so I combined the lot in this remix! She even helped with the measuring of the magnet using my digital calipers - i'll make an engineer out of her yet!!
I have 6x3mm magnets, so cut a hole in the STL to match that - a little wider for tolerance issues with my printer. I used Tinkercad to cut the hole. Tinkercad seemed to mess with the smooth model ModernGnome made and it's now all angular up close. It still prints great at 100%, but I wouldn't recommend scaling this too big!

Excuse the orange/red gunk on the print, some left over form a previous print which I couldn't get off my bed or nozzle - not to worry!

Push in a 6x3mm magnet into the hole. It may be snug so some adjustable locking pliers will help squish it in! If it's loose you may need a dab of glue on the sides to help it stay.
Throw it on a metal surface!
Remixed with a 6.2 x 3.5mm circular hole cut out of the STL file.
