You can use Rigid Body physics with Constraints to replicate this:

  1. Add a cylinder and make it an active Rigid Body object (CtrlR)

  2. Add a cube and make it a passive rigid body object (CtrlShiftR), and move it to the side of the cylinder.

  3. Constrain them together (Tool shelf > Rigid Body Tools > Connect) with Hinge constraint and rotate the resulting empty 90 degrees on the Y axis:

  4. Constrain again with a Motor constraint and enable angular motor:

  5. Duplicate

  • $\begingroup$ Cool. What about making it follow a curve like in that video. The conveyor ain't straight. $\endgroup$ – 00Ghz Aug 24 '13 at 6:04
  • $\begingroup$ @00Ghz You could use some of the techniques here, using an plane with array and curve modifiers as the emission mesh. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Aug 25 '13 at 0:04
