Magnetic Hideaway




Introduction: Magnetic Hideaway

This product is a small box, that can be placed anywhere you want that is magnetic. It's simple and can hold anything you want, from money to phones.

Step 1: Designing the Product

The first step is to take the measurements. The measurements you should should take are length, width and height of where you plan to put it. Draw a rectangular prism the size of your measurements.Then you draw squares in the corners .25 cm larger than the magnets you plan to use. You then use use the shell tool and set it to .25 cm and then click on the inner area. Next you use the extrude tool and extrude the bottom of the square sticking out, down to .25 cm longer than you magnets. Next you use the shell tool and set it to .25 cm and click on the square.
