Egg-bot

March, 2012

I bought an EggBot from Sparkfun using my Free Day winnings.  Just in time for Easter  I was able to pull it out and print some pretty amazing egg designs.  After they were printed, we dyed them and they turned out really well.

The EggBot instructions were excellent, and the software was very versatile.  Without any instruction, I was able to download a Cubs logo, convert it to a format that could be printed, and in no time I had it printed on an egg – very cool.  I was even successful in using the software to write each kid’s name on an egg using big block letters – they all turned out very well.

Not all designs were perfect.  The imperfect curve of an egg causes distortion of some patterns.
