Universal parametric switch cover

Universal parametric switch cover by jridley Dec 19, 2012

Description

This is the same basic code as my flat wall switch cover, but it's flipped on its side with a zero width perimeter so no bridging is needed.

Also by changing the parameters, it can print either the flat cover or a regular cover. If you have any other kind of switch to cover, it can probably handle that too by changing parameters even more

The "normal" switch cover is similar to thing #6688 which I've used before but this one is more robust - that one is a bit thin and weak in my experience.

Occam's switch cover!

Keep mine in mind if you have a double nema switch!

Instructions

Print, install.

If your printer can handle the bridging, I actually prefer the one that prints the other way. Remove the "rotate" command in the SCAD to print like that. I prefer it because the part where the screw goes in is stronger and is never going to split when printed like that, and for the flat one, the crosshatching you get from the last layer printing (see photo) is IMO kind of nice looking.

The two STL files should handle most switch types, but you can go to the SCAD file if you need something else.
