short question: Is the stainless steel material magnetic? I read that steel is magnetic generally but in stainless steel there are other chemicals to stop corrosion which may make it non-magnetic. Anyone knows or already has a model to try?
Our Stainless is infused with bronze, and is able to be magnetized. I've even seen reports of pieces being shipped pre-magnetized as a byproduct of one of the processes. Your friendly neighborhood Moderman
Shapeways stainless has about 40% of the magnetic susceptability of mild steel.
The surface of a flat surface is not flat when printed, there are some surface imperfections.
The iregularity of the surface reduces the 'magnetic stick' a bit, 50kg 'pulling power' neos might only be 15kgs worth overall.
thanks for that answer, you really helped me! I actually realized that it will be far to expensive for me to print this in steel unfortunately I already uploaded it and that would cost 2400€ Its not difficult to print but its a little bigger...
Thanks for the support anyways!
Now at 108€ but cant save anywhere anymore Bummer!
