The power switch cover is for newest model Anet A8 printer (I got mine on Sep 2016)

I was inspired by already existing power switch cover http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1474108. Unfortunately it is for the old model.

I was not able to adapt the model, so I've designed it from scratch.

1) on the right side of your power supply it is a screw hole 3 mm, the cover uses that one
2) on the left side I added the support for an additional screw. You will need to drill printer's side with 3.5mm, I did not get long enough bit for that, so I used a oven headed nail to burn the hole through acrylic glass.

Notes: optimized for no support print.

2016/01/24: enlarged for 5 mm to fit power-socket with 2 screws.
2016/01/30: printed and installed my latest model, looks great!!!

when possible, setup higher distance between rafts and the model.
The bottom side is big and attaching strongly to the rafts.

the cord loop is on the wrong side

What is the Amperage of the fuse you installed into the socket?

I just ordered my Anet A8 printer from gearbest.com (EU plug). Do you know what cable comes with? Do I need to buy a new cable that fits with the power switch?

A cable without a plug comes with the printer. You suppose to attach original cable directly to the AC power.

You will need to order the AC switch (in my description there is a link to ebay). And than you will attach any standard PC cable to it.

p.s. most recent A8 packages can include my enclosure already... so you better wait before ordering the ebay switch.

What is the width? 110 mm?

easiest way: you download my model and see its measures :-) isn't it?

Mine printed in mirror so won't fit. Will print again now that I have mirrored it and will let you know is how it goes

Appears it an issue with my side as another import showed it mirror again but further imports show it correct.
