We start with arranging neodymium ball magnets in a diamond like so..

This gives us a magnet with two prodominant magnetic poles.


The next thing we do is find either the negative or positive magnetic pole on one of the diamond points. And use tape (or something else to secure it stays in shape).
After we taped half the diamond along the diagonal edge. We split it to get this shape. (neatly taped up).
There may be arguments against splitting it up, I guess either way it will work.

We now proceed to make six of these shapes. All having poles of the same polarity. And arrange them in a hexagon like so.

Now precision is key here, the better the spacing is, the better results you may get. Ultimately this might even result in magnetic suspension. But for proof of concept I have gotten as far as suspending a neodymium ball inside a plastic tube (dead center). With good results.

Afaik im the first to do this, that's why I filed it under creative commons.
Did this post as a built in failsafe, and a chance for people to pick up on it.
If Im not the first please let me know :) Same can be found here

well there are many ways of achieving magnetic levitation, levatrons, contactless magnetic bearings, Mendocino Motors all manner of things have been invented since the late 1800's,

are you are creating a Diametrical magnet from the little spheres?,thats the usual way of doing it (diametrically stabilized levitation) and what is the purpose of your proposed device?

I am into pulsed magnetic motors and the likes! wireless energy, Tesla turbines, wind turbines etc etc

here is a Mendocino motor in action http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PEjvPxrmEo

check out this companies electronic levitation gadgets and displays! they look really cool. http://www.crealev.com/

interested in what you are doing though!

Regards
Jay

Hah, Honest I worked at Crealev. I have built those things.
The owner is the guy who inspired me to experiment with this about two years ago :D
My hypothesis so far is that you may be able to get a dead center "diamagnetic point" to levitate neodymium ball magnets.
