Simple mount to attach a power switch to my Prusa.


Some portions are parametric.Not tested for much variation.

The settings for the STL is for a 18.5mm hole for the rocker switch I picked up at Radio Shack. 5mm thick plate. Just thin enough for the nut on the back of the switch to screw down flush to end of switch, but my printer printed it wide.

Sliced with 3 perimeters, 25% infill. No support needed.

Connected switch to power enable pins on the PSU to toggle power on and off.

Marked as a derivative of the end stop thing because I used it as a starting point in openscad for the connectors, and to help learn openscad.

FYI, not quite the right spacing for my Prusa circa mid 2011. Take some measurements first and adjust if necessary.

As you can see from my photos, it fits on mine. It is a tight fit so as to not need any screws or bolts.
I provided the scad file so anyone can learn from or even tweak as needed fo their own needs.
