Yes, the main mount hole is 12mm x 17mm (sometimes called out as 0.51" x 0.77"). Once place to find them is ebay, like here ebay.com/itm/Mini-10-Amp-On-On-Rocker-Switch-/150305774233?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&;hash=item22feec1a99
at $7.50 they are a bit pricey. In bulk they are under $1 each. It's just a standard Rocker SPST (or DPST) 5 amp/250 VAC or 10 amp/110 VAC switch - very popular.
Nice design. Can someone describe the dimensions of the switch opening? Or perhaps some sort of description of the switch to make sure I buy the right one? This will be nice mounted to the frame of my Prusa Air!
Excelente!!!!

Instructions

Print, feed your wires through the wire hole, and install.

If you print the one with the switch hole, I use a standard (extrememly popular) size. The hole is for switches that need a 20mm x 13mm. If you want to change it, I have provided both the Google Sketchup File and STL Files for both.

If you do use a switch, I would recommend the supply side live 115 - 230 VAC switched.

The hole for the wires is large enough for any wires you will install, but small enough that little fingers can never touch the live line.

If you need help how to hook it up, here's a video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27lcqgOBb2c

Thanks !
I made one and it's perfect.
Great!

We will offer this power supply soon and will add a link to your cover and offer switch and cover in option. You never know, it could save kids life :-)
Very good. You definitely have my blessing (not that you need it, because.... IT'S OPEN SOURCE!)
Printed perfectly and looks great. Thanks!
Btw were is that filament from? I like the mate grey color.
I printed it using Ultimachine's Silver PLA. 3mm found at ultimachine.com/content/pla-3mm-silver-1lb , 1.75mm found at ultimachine.com/content/pla-175mm-silver-1lb . Their Silver PLA is a dream to print with. I printed it on Blue Tape, heat bed off, because I wanted the matte finish on the backside instead of a glossy finish. It blends in better that way.
It looks good, thx
I like how this fits inside insteadof over the psu like the other designs. Good thinking.
Yeah, I like things flush, so you can still set the power supply on any of 5 sides for flexibility.
Very nice, like the switch idea.
Thanks.
nice, exactly what i needed
Your welcome.
