How i can make conveyor belt system for factory game?

Hi, i’m wondering how can i make a conveyor belt like in factorio or roblox’s islands game i always wondered how to make items move on them, and no, i’m not looking to make items physical. I know it would lag a lot with 100s of items, any ideas? give me resources or methoods to this if you know how to

The best way to do it is anchor a part and change the velocity property. Id suggest you look at youtube videos first aswell before you open a thread here as there are many on youtube that relate to this topic!

i told you, i don’t want to use physics for this, it will destroy performance when hundreds of parts will move

Maybe have the items tween between different parts?, so you just tween it to point 1 then point 2 etc.
And then you will be able to set the speed and then distance and use that to be able to workout how long the item needs to move to get to the next point at a set speed.

hmm, i’m working on it, btw tweening is bad idea, lerping is a lot better, multithread is what kills performance too, i’ll work on it now

If the items have linear movement, I would recommend just to lerp the CFrame as I don’t think roblox offers any more efficient methods.
