This is an update of my previous project Watch Links with 1.75mm Filament pins.
The original project was intended to be an upgraded strap/bracelet for my then wristwatch. That watch has since given up the ghost before I got around to designing a proper adapter link. This time around, it's a standalone bracelet, using neodymium disc magnets to hold the ends closed. It was kind of inspired by the Apple watch's optional magnetic band.
My magnet links are designed to fit a 8mm diameter disc magnet with a height up to ~2.7-2.8 mm.
I had very good results with these settings on my Bukito using PLA:
0.2mm layer height
1mm wall thickness
1mm top/bottom thickness
40mm/s print speed
180C extruder temp
No support or raft needed.
The disc caps should just press-fit over your disc magnet. If the fit feels too loose, feel free to reinforce with your preffered glue.
