This page is about the EggBot Hive13 currently has. It is an official EggBot on loan from Ed. http://www.egg-bot.com/
The effort to design and build our own has moved to a separate Project Page: Inkjet Eggbot
This project is to design and implement a machine which will automatically paint or draw on eggs.
Jim is organizing people to help with the project.
- This project will need eggs! Lots of eggs! ...eventually.
We will be holding a brainstorming session before the meeting next Tuesday (August 25, 2009). If you want to participate, show up no later than 7:00 pm.
Egg.in File Format
This is the format of the dimensions of the egg. This is just one curve from top to bottom of the egg mapped out as an x,y vertex curve. These dimensions are used to adjust a Sphere to match the curve of the egg.

Blender Eggbot v0.1 PoC
This is just a proof of concept but it can read in the Egg.in file and will hopefully be able to map the image as a UV texture then instruct the arduino to print it...
