Belty the endless bed.


Equipment Details

Belty is a conveyor type bed intended to be used in our upcoming belt system 3D printer. This is the result of our first spiral. We were focused on the belt system and optimising it using the available materials we could lay our hands on. The electronics hardware is an Arduino CNC shield with a GRBL control firmware.
