    I like this idea @Belgath will make the build much nicer and neater.
    Do you happen to have the other (stl) parts you could add to the resource as well as a pic of it on the unit?
    Thanks in advance

    I'm almost done with the SketchUp drawing of the PSU. I will import the STL and add it to the drawing and post it here if you would like that.

    The SketchUp image with the STL would be great to have.

    Okay, imported it, looks cool:

    Side-holes don't align 100%, my model has the holes 151mm from each other and are not aligned with the holes on the bottom. I might pull out another PSU to see if I have one that is a bit off ;).

    Mark has to prove the model of the PSU first, then we'll add it to the resources.

    With my calipers I had the holes at 150mm lengthwise 50 mm apart on the width, 32.5 mm from the front edge. But I was eyeballing the center of the 4m holes.

    I will be putting a low profile version out latter this week that will sit within the frame of the power supply. This currant version, I needed room for some extra electronics. So I know won't work for a good portion of you.

    Okay, tossed my stupid ruler and used my caliper... it was 150mm indeed, now it looks like this:

    upload_2016-2-10_18-45-22.png

    The model was made in 2D CAD, and from there 100% with SketchUp; total work-time about 12 hours :D. Fan, pot-meter and LED are simplified versions that I found on the net

    Awesome thank you @Belgath looking forward to printing this.
    Do you have a parts list where we can get all the plugs, etc.
    BTW you can add updates/changes to your resource at the top right. There is no need to make a whole new resource for each update.
    Thanks again
    Mark

    That is a different resource it is a entirely different cover designed to protect just electrical connections and sit under the build plate so there is no place added for connectors or the switch. Unless I am misunderstanding sumthing here which is very possible. Been using the Green update resource button. For this one. I'll link the parts shortly.

    Also get my wire from Hobby King it's high-quality silicon clad wire that is designed to deal with movement and heat.
