Just got a new Shapeoko 3 XXL Question about the new connector

I see the connector is connected to the pins that most people use to control a relay to turn off and off the router. I thought it was a molex microfit 3, but it wwasn’t quite lining up.

Is it possible to get the type of connector that is, so I can use it to make a relay?

Could you post a picture of this connector please?

Sadly I can not get to it at the moment, here’s another thread talking about it

Thanks, however if you need help on what type of connector that might fit we need a closeup picture, or wait for C3d’s response on type.

I went and got some pictures. One is blurry due to the angle, the other straight on shot is pretty good.

This is for a new accessory we are working on. Watch this space…


…but…I’m holding your beer. I have to do both?


but I wanted to use it for a relay :wink: Could you at least give the connector type if possible?

@jorge needs his beer held


at his point we’re all holding many beers

on the one hand I love it
on the other hand… TAKE OUR MONEY NOW :wink:

Looks like a PCI-Express 6-pin, is this for ray tracing in the future?

It looks like a Molex Microfit 3 Connector, but doesn’t fit (I have them on hand.) Might be an ultra fit connector type though (but its the female version which is normally on the outside.

Man you guys are charging on the upgrades, love it

I’ve got about a tray full of beers by now @Luke @Jorge


PS I made my own version of this new accessary 3+ years ago, and of ALL the neat things I have done to my Shapeoko, this by FAR has been the most rewarding! (And my neighbor thanks me too for it).

I think I HEAR what you are saying, Richard. :rofl:
