A 3d printing technique is an additive manufacturing technique where 3D objects and parts are made by the addition of multiple layers of material.[1] It is a type of rapid prototyping. The layers are stacked up in a variety of ways depending on the technology being used. It can use a wide range of materials such as ABS, PLA, and composites as well. This technology allows the design of complex components, therefore, avoiding assembly requirements at no additional cost. This paper presents research on 3D printer design with a conveyor belt, which can be applied in industrial applications. Firstly, a CAD model of a 3d printer has been created using SolidWorks. In this step, all the parts of the model are designed and then are assembled in the SolidWorks workbench to create the 3D printer assembly. Then, the electronics board which controls the entire printing process is studied and integrated into the mechanical structure. The electronics board compiles the STL file to a suitable form to carry out the printing process and is connected to the PC using a USB-to-serial converter. Finally, a portable 3D printer is built and tested with various types of models.
