The power supply on my ANET A8 is wider, this cover did not fit mine.

I guess they changed their power supply in newer models.

but, that's why there is skp files, so that you can modify it to fit your power supply.

Hi! nice upgrade, I'm planning to do it myself but i am not very proud of my "electric skills".
Did you use a fuse for the socket+switch (what amperage?)
Could you upload a simple connection diagram to show how should it be connected?
Thank you!

This is kind of a late response, but if you haven't found one yet there's two diagrams for different switch types on my remix's page

The wires coming from the switch and ground terminal go to the printer like normal, you can even source the wireing from the cable that came with the printer, you won't be needing it any more :D
