The Conveyor Belt is a block added by Immersive Engineering. It is a means of transport that allows items to be moved from one location to another. It will move items in the overworld - meaning that players who walk nearby are at risk of plucking items from a conveyor belt without meaning to. It also means that magnets of various forms can pose a risk to conveyor-belt automation.
Conveyor belts can be dyed (although only for aesthetic reasons - there is no change to their logic in doing so).
Interaction with Items & Entities
The conveyor belt acts like an inventory, however when an item is inserted into it it will spawn that item on top of it. If a conveyor belt ends in an inventory (i.e. a chest), it will attempt to insert items on top of it into that chest.
Conveyor belts can also move entities (i.e. mobs or players) - any player on top of one will be moved in its direction of travel, and will struggle to get off of it. Holding shift (and sneaking) will allow a player to move on top of a Conveyor Belt as normal.
Placement & Redstone
The direction a conveyor belt faces can be altered during placement by clicking on a different part of the block. A handy GUI appears during placement. They can also be altered after placement by right-clicking on it using an Engineer's Hammer to rotate it, or Shift + Right Click to alter the vertical facing (e.g. up or down).
They can also be affected by redstone - applying a redstone signal will cause a conveyor block to stop moving items on it. A shapeless crafting recipe exists whereby you put a single conveyor into your crafting grid to alter whether it is affected by redstone or not (by default they are).
Conveyor Belt (Immersive Engineering) has no known uses in crafting.
