connector and switch were "resqued" from an old computer psu destined for the scrapyard

How I Designed This

After printing a design found here, i discovered the measurements of that design were all wrong for my power supply (stupid me, should have checked better).
I then desided to completely remake that design from scratch, but now suitable for my power supply and here is the result of my first design.
A mains connector and on/off switch rescued from an old computer power supply were used to fill the holes. Mount the mainsconnector onto the piece with M3 bolts and a nut. The switch just slots in the hole.
The outgoing 12volts wires are threaded through te halfround hole on the rightside wich is partly covering a hole in the 8mm acrilyc frame and .... voila ..... no more (un)plugging a wire, but simply flip a switch to turn on/off my 3d printer.

Just what i was looking for ! Sadly i didn´t look up the serial no. of the power supply and ended up having the print a little too small. Seems they sent the A8 with different power supplies. But i made it to fit anyway. Thanks for the upload !
