    I'm planning to replace my Robo3D R1+'s heated bed with a new aluminum one. I've already got most of the components I need, but I'm having trouble sourcing the bed-side electrical connector -- this one:

    I've seen claims that it's some variety of Molex plug, but I can't find its exact match on Molex's site, or on any vendor's site. Does somebody have a part number for this connector, and/or a link to a retailer that sells this connector (preferably in the USA)? If necessary, I'll replace both the bed-side and printer-side connectors with whatever I can find, but I'd rather use the stock Robo3D connector, if that's possible.

    Yes, and as such, it's not much use to me. I don't see the equivalent bed-side connector for sale on that site.

    I converted one of our beta units to use Anderson Power poles as the in-line connectors for the bed (original units did not have a connector between the RAMPS and the bed). Works fine.
