    Say I wish to transfer data that is stored on a bean canyon intel nuc, since it has a thunderbolt3(usb) port, can I connect it to a laptop with thunderbolt3(usb) through a standard thunderbolt3(usb) data cable and transfer files that way? (in a windows 10 o.s. by the way) If so, would it end up using whatever the usb-c speed is or thunderbolt3 speed?

    In my experience and limited understanding, you can only go OTG with an OTG cable, although my researches to find out what makes up an OTG cable have thus far failed.

    some people online seem to have said that usb-c has OTG functionality, but I personally haven't seen official mention of it or if thunderbolt3 has it at all..
