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 75-85C.
We recommend applying 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. If tearing still occurs, increasing the speed of outer contour that contacts the conveyor belt may help.
The conveyor belt should be installed so that the smoothest, green-tinted side will be printed on.
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 just for the conveyor belt that is compatible with the EnderBender project. It is not a complete kit to modify an Ender 3 into a conveyor belt 3D printer. You can learn more about the EnderBender project in its Facebook group here.
“I have searched all over for customs belts and could only find ready made ones that had terrible feedback…. But then I found Adam and his Formula32 belt he was able to give me a great price on a custom belt for my 45thdegree / ender bender build and now the never ender project Besides this is an amazing product Adam is supper involved in the community as a whole and is constantly supporting projects with his whole heart we need more like Adam and his formula32 belts….” – Ike Mor, New York, NY
