Go to all my models
Junior Member
I want to print a working prototype of an item that will eventually be mass-produced, made of molded plastic.

My main question: is it possible for the printing process to be stopped part of the way through for magnets to be placed in a trench in the model, then the printing would continue until the magnets are completely covered? Or should I just model 2 parts that can be glued together later with the magnet inside?

I have not modeled the item yet ...
