Flat wall switch cover

Flat wall switch cover by jridley Dec 2, 2012

Description

We have a switch that controls a light that we normally do not want turned off and on, right next to a switch that gets switched all the time. I couldn't find a cover like this for the flat designer switches, so here's one I whipped up in OpenSCAD.

That was my original design idea but I decided to try this, and it printed fine for me.  I like it better with the lip.

It would be trivial to change this, just change the width_perimeter to zero, and add a rotate([0,90,0]) command to the main code, and you'll have it on its side.

You could redesign it to print on the side and remove that lip then we wouldn't have to worry about bridging at all.

Instructions

Check that the inside dimensions at the top of the SCAD file will fit around your particular brand of switch. The opening can be changed if you like, I found this size to work pretty well.

This may be a challenging print if you have trouble bridging. If so you may need to use support in Slic3r or whatever software you use.
