All the parts have come in to build and test this. Just minus the case. If all works out well then I'll start on the case design.

First test prints. The one that looks like a VB USB controller adapter is fine. Its not too surprising since Iíve done that before. The other end needs some tweaks. Going to adjust and do another test print.

In general the centers are printing quite nicely.

The Onyx prints I do are FDM just like for the link cable parts.


Oh, I just assumed they were done on some kind of fancy SLS printer. I looked up Onyx, and it's a nylon filament with bits of carbon fiber mixed in.

Have you tested any of your parts designed for Onyx in regular ABS or PLA, to see if they still function properly? I'm mostly concerned about little locking tabs and things not being flexible enough, or the pins being too hard to insert.

I have a little piece of black nylon I bought as a test, but I haven't installed my all-metal hot-end, yet, so I can't try it out. Some of these would be a good use for it, if I have enough.


The reason for the onyx is the strength of the thinner pieces of the parts. You can try regular abs prints but may not come out strong enough. Covers would be fine.

I did try SLS. Finer features but not as good as Onyx. Also did SLA. Spent lots of time and money up front on link cable parts testing.

Some excess material in a channel was causing the slight gap in the assembled unit in the picture above. Fixed now.

Now that the VB USB adapter parts came out successfully, I'll have these new cable extension parts printed and tested. Picture of REV4 below.

It came out pretty nice. Fits nice and snug too.
Its carbon fiber FDM so very strong.

Model also attached.

Here's the d-sub male pins used:

I trim the crimp end a bit on the d-sub pins. Be careful after trimming them as they can be razor sharp and cut you. They insert very tightly into the 3D printed connector as designed. Then bond the back with an epoxy to help them stay in place.
