3D printed solenoid motor designed to be easily reproduced by educators, students, or any individual with interest.

Video includes CAD animation (Creo), photos 0:30, test of first version 0:43, test of revised version 1:28, and a short high speed clip 2:44.

The revised version uses snap-action roller switches instead of brass contacts for device-to-device uniformity and more efficient operation. A diode was placed across each coil to eliminate contact arcing on break due to the collapsing magnetic field.
