Thanks for this adapter, printed perfectly and works like a charm. Printed with OctoPrint.

mount is very bad does not a line with the frame its just pure rubbish dont waste time one it

Have you calibrated the axis of your printer ? If it's not calibrated you have no chance to fit ;) I had the same problem when I printed mine

I tried this with my ANET A6 but it didn´t fit at all with my 360w psu even when it looks exactly like yours so i had to design my own but thanks for the idea.

I have printed out this for Anet A6 and I have had to cut some plastic out in order to be able to move some mm te holder to the corner, as the m3 screws would not align perfectly to be able to screw on.

Is it work on newer Anet A8 models?

Worked on Anet A8 July 2017 Model

I tried this, but it didn't work for me. It fits nicely on the powersupply (with some new bolts) but the small threads from the original screws, won't hold in the printed adapter.. If you could include some hex nuts sunken in, it would be perfect for me. Thanx for sharing anyways, i had a lot of fun printing it, but ended up drilling one new hole in the acryl :)

I can CONFIRM that this adapter also WORKS PERFECTLY for mounting a 30A power supply to the ANET A6 as well.

Thanks for this! Saved me the time of having to design one myself, i really didn't want to drill new holes into my acrylic (its been zip tied so far lol) so I thought id give this a try first and it works perfect!

Those who don't know i used short M4 screws to attach the adapter to the power supply, and medium length M3 screws to attach the assembly to the acrylic frame. The holes on the adapter are designed so the M3 screws thread directly into the plastic, it is a tight enough fit and holds very well! All screws I used were extras that came with my printer.

I would suggest adding the Anet A6 into the title so more people that need it can find it.

Thanks again!

Thanks for your feedback ;) I agree mounting without drilling was the point !

I drilled holes into my A8 to mount this power supply.

Can you show how it is mounted in more detail

I agree, I haven't removed the old power supply yet. Maybe it will be more obvious then. I don't see this adapter installed in the image provided. Thanks

It looks like this adapter suits flush against the back side of the new power supply with the long lug pointing up. The counter bored holes are away from the supply. When installed this adapter resides in between the back of the power supply & the triangular acrylic frame of the A8.

What kind of screws were used to assemble this exactly? I got the exact same power supply, glad to see that you made a bracket for it!
