apparently the manufacturer has redesigned the frame, and holes are smaller in newer model.
this will only fit in the older model A8.

button guide for Anet 3D "Anet A8" model Prusa i3 3D printer aka "Omni" aka "m-505".
Acrylic framed printers with 5 button next to LCD screen.

should reduce play, install from back of the acrylic frame.

may be the same printer as "alunar", "senhai", "hesine", "kaleep", "kakeep" and others?

Thank you very much, very good idea, more play and more support.

It works!
Thank you )

Be sure to snap off each of the buttons. If you don't, it will break your button! I accidentally pushed too hard on mine and the button just broke apart!

Don't work for me anet a8 :(

My outside diameter of the holes are 7mm in the acrylic frame and from your button guide the outside diameters are 10mm, unfortunately does not fit with me :-(

I believe the manufacturer has changed their design.

this is for the old model A8.

This is great on my Anet A8 with black acrylic frame. Tight fit, but easily fixed with a little sand / scrape.
Thanks @Simhopp for sharing.

It's a must have. My Anet A8 is new model (acrylic black) and the button guide works fine.

Does not fit on the Zonestar p802M,
the acrylic holes are smaller

Is too big. Are perfect ahead the button, but isn t good for the exit of the botton. Have A8 black.

If the manufacturer changed the dimension of the parts,
there is nothing much I can do.

Caution: The newer A8 models wont be able to fit these!

did they change the diameter of the holes in the acrylic frame?

Well its either that or my print is to bulky.... The buttons on the board however fit like a glove.
From inner side to side there is 7mm space in the acrylic frame per hole.
Space between button and frame is 1mm overall...

Works perfect.Big improvement :)

omg I love it, the buttons are so much better now. I recommend to install the printing from the back side.

A must have..... !!!!

Great idea, thanks! :)

Works great :)...it was really frustrating to have a reliable button press without it.
It's a must have.

works great!
It should come as stock on the printer!
Also it helped as I calibrated my printer. At first I couldn't get the circles right but now it printed OK!

Theese are wery good, I can recommend it to everyone, the buttons feels much better...
