Yummy looking macarons you can print!
You are looking for a little unique gift or a small deco item for your desk?
These tiny macarons look just like the real thing.
You can choose between 3 different types for assembly, depending on the filling (as seen in the pictures above):
"Macaron_filling_3sticks" - the sticks are attached to the filling. Place it between 2 Macaron shells and just push them together (this filling needs to be printed with supports).
(brown macaron on the right in the third picture)
"Macaron_filling_3holes" + 3x "Macaron_stick" - Print 2 shells and glue a stick in each hole of one shell. After the glue is dry you can place the filling with 3 holes between the shell with the sticks and the second shell without sticks and push them together.

"Macaron_filling_plane" + 6 magnets - for this version you need to glue 3 magnets into each shell.
Magnet size: ø 4mm, 2mm height (I used neodyn magnets)
First you should mark one pole on each magnet to make sure you put them in the right direction (eg. a red dot on every north pole).
Take the first shell and glue one magnet in each hole with the dot facing towards you.
Take the second shell and glue one magnet in each hole with the dot facing towards the shell.
After the glue is dry you can put the filling in between. The magnets will hold everything together.

The third version (or "Magarons" as @welbot called them) makes also a great fridge magnet, a holder for notes or paperclips - a perfect tool for your office desk.
And they are fun to play with!
Print a whole bunch of them in different colors to mix and match.
But remember, no matter how delicious they look - dont eat them! ;-)
Supports only for the file "macaron_filling_3sticks" necessary.
