About Us
In 2018, Artur and Martin founded a cleantech company focused on the development of an innovative sustainability machine. The R&D process was not only time- and staff-consuming, but also required a huge number of unique parts that were neither sold nor possible to customize according to the needs of small companies.

After a long search, they found a solution: a new 3D printing technology called — belt printing. But there was still no printer manufacturer who offered an affordable belt printer. Only expensive business solutions existed. That’s why Martin decided to build an open-source low-budget 3D belt project and publish it on Thingiverse.

With the help of this newly conceptualized belt printer, Artur and Martin were able to rapidly simplify their prototyping and replace all of their previously used conventional 3D printers. Now they want to make this awesome printer available for everyone! Order your printer on Kickstarter now!

Common questions
What materials can I use with this printer?
PETG, PLA, ABS, ASA , TPU, PC, NYLON.
How should I insert the filament?
Insert the filament into the extruder by hand like in every other 3D-printer by hand, there will also be an auto-unload and auto-fill option available on display.
How long does it take to print something?
It depends on the print settings and object size, with average settings, a 20x20x20mm cube takes around 20 minutes.
How big is the build volume?
The parameters of the build volume are the same as the printers’ dimensions: 180 mm(H), 290 mm (W), infinite (L).
Does the printer have automatic failure detection?
Yes. We are working on a failure detection algorithm that can detect several common failures and even automatically restart printing with changed settings.
How can I print more than one object in a row?
When the print is finished, the rotation of the belt will release the printed part. After the part fall off, a new print can be started. You can load several objects in the slicer and set the number of copies.
Where can I find open source material to print with this printer?
Thingiverse, GrabCAD, MyMiniFactory, Pinshape, etc.
What 3D printing software does this model use?
Cura Engine (own version) for slicing and Octoprint / Octoscreen (own version) as the user interface.
How do the printed parts fall off?
If they don’t fall off by the curvature of the belt, they get separated using a scraper (attached to the printer).
Does the printer come with any additional services?
Yes. There will be an option to print from everywhere and upload / download files directly to the printer.
Is material support required?
For most objects, no support is needed. Using the 45° angle you are able to print objects without any infill or support. For some very complex objects you still need to place support.
What is the difference between a conventional printer and this one?

+ 45° printing angle enables you to print overhangs without any support 
+ Belt enables automatic cleaning of the build room 
+ Using the belt and the 45° angle you can print objects larger than the printer.
