Hey AZDawg,
In Cura the tabs that fit around the buttons don't show and it doesn't print them. Any ideas?

Sorry, I use Cura and it works for me...

Would you mind if I ask what version.

This was a while ago so it must have been Cura 2.3

Going to build tonight. Thank you! BTW, where you folks getting the trim for around the display from?

Two sizes for the width of space around the display. If the v2 buttons fit then the v2 bezel should be the right one.

Thanks. You rule. :)

Printed your things, but have a problem on diameter of buttons because they're too small (about 1mm each one) and I think on the size of the structure also (not measured now, I'm in office)...

Tested on my Anet A8, printed to 100% fill and 0.2mm layer size (nozzle 0.4mm) at 100% of STL size, with Simplify3D

This button trim is for what I call 'version 2'. The clearance is much tighter/smaller.
For the slicer I used 0.41 for the wall thickness.

You might need this if you have the other A8 with larger clearance on the faceplate for LCD and buttons:
It is for v1 and will fit in from behind the faceplate.
