Magnetic Ludo game
Here we would like to show you another interesting project with our magnets: Magnetic Ludo game
Our client built a Ludo game board for his parents as a gift.
The board consists of the following materials:
- Epoxy resin
- Color pigments to color the resin
- Poplar wood
The play figures are created using the 3D printer in four different colors and are glued to a metal discs.
Of course, there is also a container for dice and figures, into which magnets are also glued, so that each part is neatly in its place.
When working with epoxy it is important to create a well sealed mold so that the resin cannot spill out.
First place the wood in the mold and then pour the transparent resin over it until it is completely surrounded by it. After pouring the epoxy resin, small air bubbles often form, but these can be easily removed with a lighter. Depending on the type of resin, it takes 24-72 hours to cure.
After the game board is solid, you grind and polish it afterwards. Then the countersinks for the individual fields are milled. You then stick a discmagnet in each hole and fill the individual color fields with the corresponding colored resin. A beer coaster is placed on each of the remaining normal fields.
You then attach the remaining magnets to the storage box, which was also created in the 3D printer, and stick the game figures from the printer onto the metal discs.
And finished is a magnetic Ludo game!
