We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Inspired by the MakerBelt, but loving OpenSCAD, what was I to do? I wrote a script to generate belts!
Aside from being parametric, the belt is also different in that the end snaps onto the beginning, so you can join multiple belts into one huge belt.
Print the belt as-is if you wear a 32" belt.
parametric-belt-lap.stl is a belt that's 32 inches long. It fills a Replicator plate.
parametric-belt-lap-t4.stl is a short segment of 3 links plus one link that can be clipped onto the longer belt.
Or edit the OpenSCAD script's parameters to do things like:
Might make an interesting tank tread as well. :-)

So what's this mean?
We're sure laird would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
