The Original EggBot

What is it?

The EggBot is an art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects. Adjustable; designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally “impossible” to print on. Not just eggs but golf balls, light bulbs, mini pumpkins, and even things like wine glasses.

The EggBot is not just a cool gadget; it’s also an introduction to CNC (computer numerical control) and do-it-yourself robotics.

The EggBot software allows you to control the ‘bot from within Inkscape — a freeware illustration program. You can draw an image directly, trace a photograph, or import designs from other programs.
