I'm very interested to know what you used for the connectors.

Salvaged or custom made ?

Completely custom. Modeled the connector from scratch based on the port on the bottom of the VB and from pictures of the VUE-004 cable online.

Then 3D printed in different materials and iterated on design until it worked the way I wanted it.

Contacts are USB pins. You have to design around a specific part number because the back ends are not all the exact same size or length depending on the housing. I chose one that pulls apart easily enough so they could be salvaged for making the link cables. Takes 2 USB connectors to make a single link cable end.

Latest parts just came in. I'll be building tonight and through the weekend to try to get everyone their cables.

I am out of town Monday and Tuesday so some may slip into the next week but I'll do my best to not let that happen.
