Magnetic Levitating Minion. Uses magnets above Minion and magnets inside Minion suspended with fishing string (or thin/clear thread) to create levitating effect.
Additional parts needed:
Fishing String (or thin/clear thread)
4x 12.7mm (.5in x 1/16in) disc magnets - purchased at local hobby store
I recommend a drop of glue to hold the parts and magnets in place, although it's not necessary as the parts all fit pretty snug.
There are 3 main parts
The base, the Arm, and the Figure. The base snaps into the arm to lock in the string. Slot in back of figure to insert 2 magnets. I also included the .stl for the magnets (single and double) for reference in case you want to make your own figure.
Check your magnet direction before assembly!

Please Keep comments relative to the design or print, but feel free to leave a comment or question.
Print minion on his back for minimal supports. Some minor clean up of support connects after printing. Arm and base are designed to print on their sides for no/minimal support needs. Base snaps into arm and locks in fishing string.
