Prusa i2 power panel
by labsud, published
This is a power panel to be mounted at the rear of Mendel Prusa. It clips on threaded rods, and can be optionnally secured with 4 cable ties It's specifically desined for Prusa Iteration 2, since smooth rods are on top of thheaded rods, allowing to save place between the rear two threaded rods. That space is used for the power panel.
The power panel holds an IEC standard socket and a switch to switch off machine without unplugging power cord.
There's enough space to change switch or IEC socket, and add fuse holder if you want.
Can also be modified to hold anything you want on that traditionnally unused space.
On Prusa, there's space on the machine to add 3 of theses (2 front, 1 rear), allowing to fix securely other things (reset button, mini display, tool holder, ...)

You'll probably have to adapt it to you own IEC / power switches, since mine have been salvaged from used equipements and are a bit specials (IEC socket is a EMI/RFI Filter).
Mesure your stuff, and add 1/2mm to allow te device to be clipped.
The plate must be printed vertically, adn sliced with support material. I've used successfully Slic3r with following settings :
- Overhang thresold : 45
- Patterns : rectlinear
- Patterns spcing 2.5mm
- Pattern angle : 0
Print, cleanup support, mount your hardware, clipon, and that's all...
