    Question AC adapter brackets

    Does anyone have a design for AC adapter brackets? I've seen a bunch in pictures before but can't seem to find any. I'm looking for one that uses velcro to hold an AC adapter brick to a 3D printed mount plate.

    I just attach velcro straight to the power supply brick.

    That's what I'm doing now, but the velcro keeps coming off due to the heat...

    Couple dabs of superglue or 2 part epoxy will resolve that problem.

    These are what I drew up for my vortech pumps. I found out afterwards that they used a few different models of power supplies for each pump.



    These fit model gpe072d-320225w

    I Designed this to work with my Radion Power Bricks... If you need to you should be able to re-size in TinkerCAD, or make new ones based on my design.... I drill holes in the center of the Screw holes depending on which screws I am going to mount with. Slots are for Velcro strip that I use to hold the PS in place. Design prints quicker and doesn't use as much filament.

    This looks great! Thanks for sharing. I have yet to print the ones Torx has sent me as I've been busy with work and life. However, both of these designs are exactly what I'm looking for. I'll have to play with this.

    Thanks!

    I have used a variation on this design for several different things. I also made one that is more like Torx's design for a WavePuck controller mount. When I get some time I will post them in this 3D Print Forum.

    Put it up on thingiverse just now.
    The power brick holder is compatible with Ecotech brick GM150-2400600 and jebao/Chinese model: BYX-2402500, maybe more, but that is all I had on hand to compare.

    A few quick things I've made for my project.

    These are vertical mounts, so the mount screws to the wall, and then the brick just drops in. Easy to get in and out, holds it nicely, etc etc. I have more parts I'm working on, will post as I put up on thingiverse.
