Based on a successful 1 T Class PIT insert coil, we now pursue a 3 T Class insert coil. This paper describes the design and the latest conductor and coil test results, as well as supporting experiments. The final product is envisioned to contain 3 concentric sections, requiring over one kilometer of conductor. This will be tested in a 20 T large bore resistive magnet at the NHMFL. Experimental work focuses on the use of conductor with a silver-alloy matrix in the outer sections, that are subject to the largest stresses when operated in a background field. Results from heat treatment optimization for wound coils, mechanical test of conductors and coil design studies are reported.
