Default 12v power supply cover

Anyone have an .stl file for the protective cover for the 12v power supplies? Broke mine and can't find one online to buy. Something like the one in the picture.

That's going to vary pretty wildly depending which power supply yours was made from. There's a few files on thingiverse, or learn to use fusion 360 and design one specific to yours.

I made one for a friends RL power supply a while back since RL was less than helpfull getting him a new one. I just put it up on thingiverse so you can see if it will work for you.

The cover is for the 750W supply. Now I need a cover for the 850W which is a little bigger

Wow, it would be awesome if someone made these for the standard DIY HP server supplies as well!

Figured out for a 850W PS I just add 5mm to the X/Y Axis to make it a little longer.

Are these just glued onto the psu? How are they mounted? If glued, what kind of glue is used? I'd like to design a cover for myself without destroying the stock one.

Thanks. I’m designing my own. I’ll ask RL Power how they fasten it and what they use.
