Understanding Magnetic Cubes


Magnetic Cubes have been used for ages by individuals all across the globe in many different applications. People have used them for healing and to control their environment. If you are planning to buy a Magnetic Cube for your home or office, there are some factors to consider before making the purchase. The following information will give you all the information you need on this amazing product.

The first and foremost factor that you need to know about Magnetic Cubes is that they can be very handy tools to have. Magnetic Cubes are ordinary speed cubes with tiny magnets installed in every side and edge piece that attracts the corresponding magnetized piece when a complete turn is made. These pieces are small and can fit into any pocket, purse or hand bag without the owner having to sacrifice much more. The magnets attached to these magnetic cubes come in a variety of strengths and colors and it is up to the consumer to determine what pieces they would like to add to the magnetic cubes collection.

There are two types of Magnetic Cubes available for purchase; magnetic cubes that come in standard sizes or custom-made cubes. Standard size cubes range from 5mm X 5mm and are ideal for people who wish to have more pieces for their collection at a low price per piece. The standard size cubes have holes that allow for other items to be put into the cube such as paper and jewelry. Custom-made magnetic cubes can also be bought for a specific number of pieces, with no minimum size requirement.

Another factor to consider is the strength of the magnets. Most magnetic cubes have strong magnets while others are comprised entirely of weaker metal magnets. It is important to note that stronger magnets will create stronger pulls on the edges of the cubes. Weak magnets will cause the edges to be weaker and this will allow the pieces to be slipped over the edges. This may not seem like much of a concern until you try to remove a magnetized cube from its location and realize how strong the pull is.

It is also important to determine whether the magnetic cubes you are about to buy are composed of heavy-duty magnets or not. If they are comprised of neodymium cubes, then they should be able to withstand more weight than those made of other materials. Many standard sized neodymium cube magnets are only rated at 0.1 N and although they may sound like a lot of weight, they are still relatively light.

You can purchase cubes that have several sides to them. However, you should keep in mind that these magnets will most likely be attracted to one side of the cube. If you do not have an edge piece to place on the top of the cube with the magnets, then it will be difficult for the magnets to repel from the opposite side of the cube. It is also possible to purchase magnets that have slightly rounded edges. These slightly rounded magnets will repel more easily from the sides of the cube.

The standard sizes of neodymium cube magnets range from small to large. Therefore, if you intend to build a magnetic motor or other electrical device that will require several of these cubes, you can find the ones that will fit. There are also specialty sizes that are slightly larger than regular-sized magnets. In order to save money, these larger size cubes are typically cheaper than the regular-sized magnets. The additional cost is worth it because of the added strength the larger sized magnet will provide.

While you can purchase magnets that have a variety of different shapes and sizes, the best way to make sure you have the right sized magnet for your project is to measure the dimensions of the cube before you go shopping. You should also carefully consider the colors and styles that you would like to incorporate into your finished product. If you decide that you need a red, white, and blue cube, you should be sure that the magnets you purchase are rectangular in shape. This will ensure that the magnets can cling to the sides of the cube effectively. Also, if you have any questions about the different sizes of neodymium cubes or the different shapes of magnets that are available for these cubes, you can consult a professional at your local hardware store.
