Inspired by most skater belt buckles, our 3D Printed buckle is a simple design that works with most grosgrain belts. The four piece design uses a latch that grips onto the belt by clipping it down. The cover is really interesting because it can be customized to have your name or logo. Combing this with a bright color that really pops can create an awesome style worthy of an Instagram.
Designed in Autodesk Maya, I used basic modeling techniques to create the pieces and carefully measured them so it fits the belt nice and tight. After a few prototypes we got the tolerance issues down and each piece holds together quite nicely.

The pieces easily snap together and only requires one piece to be glued for assembly. The buckle is pretty durable and lightweight. The teeth in the latch and cover are sharp and tightly hold your belts adjustments for a nice fit.
It's an ABS print that has a layer height resolution of 200 microns and takes about 30 minutes to print all the prints separately. The assembly is easy and only takes about two minutes. Cause you know, gotta let the glue dry...
