WW-1230A 12VDC 30A Switching Power Supply Cover and Mounting Bracket for Ecksbot and Prusa Style 3D Printers by brooksware2000 Oct 8, 2012


I have been putting the finishing touches on my Ecksbot build and decided to clean up the mounting scheme for the electronics. I'm looking for portability so, I decided to mount the power supply onto the printer. I also wanted to add more protection against accidental contact with the AC wiring than what is afforded by the barrier strip cover. As such, I present a front cover, rear cover and mounting plate for the WW-1230A 12VDC 30A switching power supply found on Ebay.

The design files where created with Cubify Invent and are compatible with the Ecksbot or Prusa style 3D printers.

Update 9 Oct 2012 - Added a build plate that includes the front, rear and mounting brackets from thing:10621 - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10621

The mounting plate is made from three pieces:

left mount plate right mount plate center mount plate

Snap the three pieces together and use super glue or acetone/ABS glue to bond.

Use M4 x 16 mm bolts to secure mount plate to 3D printer frame.

I'm using the following components from Mouser Electronics:
