STL file to have the VB USB controller adapter housing 3D printed. Tweaked for Markforged Onyx. Do what you'd like with it.

Here's my page with more details: http://www.mellottsvrpage.com/index.php/vb-controller-usb-adapter/

It's a bit bare at the moment but I'll update soon with more part details so someone can build their own. Takes about the same time and effort as the link cable.

This page now has the hex file at the end of the page to program the DFRobot Beetle Arduino board. The 3D print design files, programming hex file, and the description on the page should be enough for anyone to build their own. You'll need a donor connector for now.

And now the connector model. Once I've tested it and built some, I'll post the model. Then the entire VB controller USB adapter can be built from new parts.

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.

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

Hey man would you be willing/able to build one of the VB USB adapters to send to the UK? This thing is awesome and like the OP said, I do also believe that the VB controller is the best one out there - people knock the ergonomics of the console itself but they struck gold with this controller, it's so comfortable.

Looks easy to build.

All the design files are also located here for anyone who wants to build it themselves:

http://www.mellottsvrpage.com/index.php/vb-controller-usb-adapter/

The 3D models are also here on PlanetVB for the housings:
