Belt 3D printers

Post by Mike Annear »

I have a couple of 3D printers that I use for prototyping, but they can only do one print at a time, then the print bed has to be cleaned etc before the next print.
I have been following the development of Belt printers, like the Blackbelt system, for a while,
but they are expensive.
It looks like Creality is making a much more affordable machine.

In the past few years, there was a significant breakthrough, more machines came out and became affordable.
I actively monitor belt 3D printers and put together a list of existing products and innovations.

for the Creality belt one, I believe it runs a modified version of Cura, so you may be locked to a specific version. For mass printing it seems pretty good. I have seen some videos that describe how the new hotend angle limits your ability to add supports in a bunch of situations.

I do love the idea of printing a I beam of infinite length . . .
