Short summary
We use the theory of magnetostatic reciprocity to compute manufacturable solutions of complex magnet geometries, establishing a quantitative metric for the placement and subsequent orientation of discrete pieces of permanent magnetic material. This leads to self-assembled micro-magnets, adjustable magnetic arrays, and an unbounded magnetic field intensity in a small volume, despite realistic modelling of complex material behaviours.
