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


I printed the design files on the MakerBot Replicator with the following settings:

Object Infill: 10%
Layer Height: 0.3
Number of Shells: 2
Feed Rate: 41
Travel Feed Rate: 56
Print Temperature: 230
Heat-Bed Temperature: 115

Print one of each:

WW-1230A Front Coverx2
WW-1230A Rear Coverx1
Mount Plate Leftx4
Mount Plate Rightx4
Mount Plate Centerx4

Print 4 mount 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:
