I designed a Philips Hue light switch cover about a year ago when I moved into my new house and posted it on Thingiverse for others to download. In the last couple of months many people have asked me to print them so I have, and that leads me here after a buyer suggested I post here.
I’ve designed plates for a number of scenarios… single switches, double switches, 5mm and 10mm deep switches, a blanking plate to cover unused switches, and a low profile version to replace the traditional switch entirely. I’ve also done some custom designs for people with even more non-standard switches.
The standard plates fit switches under approximately 86x88x8mm (HxWxD) with the switch itself being under 18x32mm. I also have 11.5mm deep ones as standard but can alter the design if your requirements are different.
Most of these are available for download and printing yourself here:
Or… if you don’t have a printer, or know someone who does, I can print them for you. I charge £10 each, including the magnet, blanking plugs to cover the screws, longer screws (except with the low profile one), and UK P&P. I’ll drop the price to £45 for orders of 5. Happy to do custom designs where possible and I quite fancy printing some luminous ones if anyone is feeling adventurous ;-).
Please note that the finish on 3D printed parts is not high gloss like standard switches and has a ‘grain’ from the printing process, this isn’t noticeable when on the wall. The feedback has been universally positive, I’ve even had customers who wanted to sand and spray them but when they put them up were delighted with how it looked and didn’t bother.
Whilst I only have one printer (running 24/7) to keep up with orders, I shall be ordering another to increase my throughput. I’ve been designing and 3D printing for 2 years now, so can work with most requirements.
