All of the other light switch covers I found here were for the large protruding US style of light switches. We aren't so self-conscious in Australia that we need to offset our phallic deficiencies with large light switches... anyway, I digress...
I have as security light whose switch is right above the switch for our hall light. Well-meaning visitors, the chronologically and vertically challenged and the memory-deficient often hit the wrong switch rending the security light inactive. Enter Sketchup, Slic3r, Pronterface and Printrbot to the rescue.
This was my first print with my new 0.35mm tip, and it's amazing the difference over the 0.5mm tip - especially the top layers.
Download, print and remove the support piece (if you're lucky it will stay on your bed when you peel the switch cover off. Then remove the screws from your light switch and install the cover over the top, holding it in place with the existing screws. Then question why you really needed to read these instructions - I mean, it's pretty bloody obvious from the photo isn't it? Seriously!
