Use this tag for questions that relate to mechanical motion of a loop or a strip of material that induces rotation of multiple shafts.

To print material in multiple dimensions it is required to mechanically move certain parts like e.g. carriages. The rotational motion of a stepper, servo or an electrical motor needs to be transferred to that carriage. Belts (e.g. timing belts) are used to transmit the power.
