Few days ago, i was watching tv and a guy was wearing a 3d printed belt. I felt it was so cool that I wanted to design mine. Here it is!
I am wearing it for sevral days, it is confortable and I didn't get any weakness issue so far.

The closing system is still to be improved to make it easier to use (buckle shouldn't be totally remoable), but it works fine.


Printed with a MakerBot Replicator 2, standard mode for all parts, no support and no raft (except for dowels)

  • print as many crosses, crosses with holes, H, H with holes as you need according to the length you want for your belt.
  • print one of all other parts
  • print as many dowels as needed, lying on a raft. Layers have to match the length of the dowels to optimise the resistançe.
  • mind that the front side of the buckle isn't flat. You want to print it lying on back side.

Assemble the parts this way: ending, cross_hole, H_hole,....., cross, H,....,H, cross_male, peack
You will need a small harmer to push carefully the dowels into the H together with a cross. The dowel will be strongly fixed with the H but the cross will be free to turn around.

Once you wear the belt, cross_male goes into a hole and the buckle slips to get the 2 layers fixed together. In the beginning the buckle is a bit hard to slip but it gets quickly easy to use.

Hi a standard/minimum size ready STL plate would be cool. We fat people would just print more H and Crosses...Would be easier :)

This may seem to be a stupid question, but what are the holes for? I know on a normal belt a pin slips onto one of them to keep the belt adjusted properly, but this belt appears to be friction fit.

Soon to be leaving thingiverse because of Makerbot's behavior towards open source.

Instructions? Print settings? Both would be helpful! Thanks...

There are istructions now!

Sorry guys, I forgot to upload the Cross_Male...here it is!

Use the dowels (should I say hinge?) to string parts together. Print as many dowels (with raft) as other parts.
You'll need a harmer to push it into the H, but the Cross' hole is a bit larger to allow the rotation.

I assume you just string it together with some filament that you fuse into the belt to make hinges?
