Testing Electromagnets

A project log for A robot for automating 3D printers

We are building a robot that automates 3D printers in a 3D printer farm.

We have purchased electromagnets to eject the steel build plate on our 3D printer. We have decided to exclusively use Prusa printers for testing as these are the 3D printers used by our school.

Unfortunately, these magnets are not strong enough to pick up the build plate. We will need to think of a way to reduce the required lifting force.
