The Formula32 conveyor belt is durable, flexible, and is compatible with a wide variety of 3D printing materials.
Every conveyor belt is shipped with a few strips of PET tape to join the ends of the belt together. You may want to add a full roll of PET tape if you plan to do a lot of belt printing.
For PLA, we recommend a bed temperature of 65-75C. For PETG and TPU, we recommend a bed temperature of 70-80C.
For some brands of material, you may need to apply a thin layer of glue stick to the conveyor belt. When printing PLA, this helps the prints stick to the conveyor belt. When printing PETG, it acts as a release agent to prevent PETG sticking too much to the conveyor belt, and causing the top PET layer to tear.
The conveyor belt should be installed so that the smoothest, green-tinted side will be printed on.
“This was a really fun build. The instructions were well laid out and it’s a really solid design. Assembly was pretty easy and calibration and printing has been super smooth. I tried to do another Ender Belt type build before and it didn’t quite work out that well. But this just works.” – Tony B. – Maryland USA
“Instructions were very clear and assembly was straightforward. Only thing that tripped me up was the first print coming out inverted. Quick mirror in the slicer and good to go. Your calibration prints are a great start point. I’m looking forward to designing a roller system for long prints.” – Dustin C. – Alberta Canada
Dimensions are approximate and may differ slightly between conveyor belts due to being made by hand with love.
To avoid any possible confusion: This listing is for the conveyor belt that is compatible with the Ender EZ Belt project from Powerbelt3D. It is not a complete kit to modify an Ender 3 into a conveyor belt 3D printer. You can learn more about the Ender EZ Belt project here.
Each conveyor belt comes with a few strips of PET tape to join the belt together according to these instructions:
This is a project that requires knowledge of 3D printers, firmware, and hardware to complete. Purchasing a conveyor belt for the project does not guarantee a successful build. All conveyor belts are made to order by hand. Because of this, no refunds or returns are offered.
