Does the non magnetic weilong gts3 have magnet slot?

I want to 3d print a budget interchangeable magnet system for it and having a magnet slot kind of obstruct the planning

Cube Solve Hero said he was gonna try, but I haven't seen any footage or confirmation yet.
And..... he mest up the polarities. XD oh well. IF the m version is anywhere near as good as a LMM or MF3RS2m then I really want to pick one up and magnetize it. If not, then i'll wait for the mf3rs3.

What is the best magnet strength for a WuShuang 5x5, corners and edges? I would like them to be on the weaker side, but still enough strength in the edges so I can do M slice moves.
N35 4x1.5 all around if you want it on the weaker side. If you want, you can use N35 4x2 for the inner layers.

My WuShuang has N38 4x1.5 all around, and I think it's perfect.

I've been thinking about magnetizing a Yuexiao Pro with magnets from a Shengshou Mr. M. Could I do it, should I do it, and would I need superglue?
P.S. The Shengshou magnets are 5x1.5 mm

Definitely sounds possible. Just ignore the magnet slots and glue magnets on the walls on the opposite sides. And of course you need superglue.

Could I instead use hot glue?
Would it melt the plastic?
I've never tried it, nor have I heard of anybody using it, but for the very reason you just stated, I'm going to not recommend it.

What I do recommend, however, if you're in the US, is to get some Gorilla Glue Gel at your local hardware store.

Any ideas how to remove glued magnets from the cube? Unfortunately bought (not so)cheap magnets and its grade turned out to be far less than declared by the seller (n35 or even less instead of n42)....:mad:

N35 is the lowest so they're not below that.

To remove, soak the pieces in warm water to loosen the glue then use pliers to pull them out.
Thanks! Will try. You're right, N35 is the lowest for 80C working temperature (N-mark), but for the higher temp there are magnets starting from grade 28.
