My pond pump runs on a swich, which is convenient for maintainance, but makes it a pain when roomates stumble in looking for the lights.

So here's my solution, a switch cover that requires no panel modification.


After having my first print pop up and fail (See Picture), I added another base to help with base adhesion (Xsupport).

Both files are included in case you want to make modifications, just list me under your derivative!

You'll likely want to generate some support material as well.

Let me know if you have requests or questions!

Genius! Will be showing this to my students the first day of school. Great ideas do not have to be complex. Nice job.

Send me your design projects from class!

I think that might be the first time I'll have homework I actually want to do!

I don't have need for one of these now, but i used to. Thanks for making such a imaginative and practical print! Have you considered making a dome version for parents trying to keep their kids off the switches?

Glad you like my design!

I didn't even think about making it fully covered, because that eliminates the need for a switch. Though I could cover the bottom to keep small fingers from reaching up to it.

I did think about making it a full hinged cover that maintains the on position, and has to be flipped up to turn the swi
tch off, and can't be put back in place until the switch is on again.

If any parents request, I could absolutely cover the bottom half. Just let let me know!

Not a parent, so i can't oblige you there, but my idea was to have a small hole, where a toothpick could flip the switch, but small fingers couldn't get into. Sort of like a reset switch on many electric appliances where you don't want them accidentally being pressed.

Ah, I see! if i was going to do that, I would add a printed key as well.

It would be the psudo-printed version of this:
