Aluminatus IEC Switch and Plug holder
by SystemsGuy, published
I made this in a effort to correct two things on my A1 - first the beast has a hard wired US power cable - which is not super useful if you are not in the US - and a switch that didn't switch very well.
I decided to go with the starndard IEC plug, and to get one with an integrated switch to simplify things.
Printed with 33% infill - I wanted to make sure the box was sturdy. I used a "standard" IEC plug/switch combo as found on eBay, and the box is keyed so that the quick release tabs are accessbile from the rear of the box in the event you need to remove the switch.
The wiring is channeled out though the tunnel under the rear 2060 extrusion. I'd strongly reccomment retaining the strain relief on the cord as it's done today.
I ended up having to move the rear foot a bit, but your mileage my vary here, as they seem to be put in different places.
