    Hello everyone

    so i am making my one wheel, i am designing it and buliding it my self using 3d printing, and i am asking you guys to look at the photo and tell me how do i make this type of connection.

    I will be getting a leo bodnar board and that has a usb type B header, and my plan is to plug the usb cable type B to the leo bodnar header then that cable will connect to one side of this connecteur and then the the cable that comes from the cpu.

    Look at the photos maybe you'll understand better what im trying to do!
    my problem is i dont know how to wire the usb cables into these type of connecteurs and also i dont know how to search them so i can buy them

    thnx for any help

    Those are GX16 connectors. Sometimes referred to as panel connectors, aviation plug or aero connectors. You just buy the male and female ones, cut the end off the USB cable and put the plug on. If you're getting the Bodnar BBI board you can get it without the USB header and wire straight to it. Otherwise you can cut down a USB-B connector and wire one side to the panel connector and plug the other side into the board.

    The wiring is very easy, USB is colour coded:
