I'll probably end up making my own version based on this idea: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:20129

The power supply is small enough it could probably be mounted to the Hadron as well (the 24V supply for my Shapeoko is similar in size). There are screw holes on all sides for the small computer screws.

For me, it's partly a safety thing - I need to have a degree of confidence that my kids can't touch anything live.

at 30A it should be more than powerful enough for my Hadron, with lots of room for future upgrades like dual extruders and heated beds.


I have about 30 of the 12v 25A version of those power supplies from Meanwell. It's a very reputable brand, and I've never had an issue with their power supplies. I'll let them go cheap, as I've sold the business I used to use them for. Shoot me a PM if you're interested in one.

Thanks for posting the link to this thing. I didn't go with this type of power supply because of safety concerns. I'm currently using an old Xbox 360 power supply on my MendelMax.

These are the things you need to share with the community earlier haha. I ordered that eBay one last night.
