Dear professors, scholars, school teachers, and hobbyists.

Thank you for visiting the website.

You can download the .STL files of the units from: http://shu21th.sakura.ne.jp/STL.zip
Please feel free to download, reprint with a 3D printer, and use them in your educational purposes.

The magnets used in the experiments are: S-03-03-N, 3x3mm:

The iron plate placed below a substrate unit can be anything similar, as long as it weakly attracts the substrate (SL+SS) and prevents it from floating away from the position.
