Description

Print out one set.

Fill in one uncooked egg.

Close lid tightly.

Boil 3 to 5 minutes, as desired.

Surprise your spouse with breakfast in bed with your own selfmade square eggs.

(Don't try tell her you printed them out, she may not want to eat them than.)

Hey, anybody ever tought of printing direktly with egg yolk/ egg white?

Egg solidifys at a nice, low temperature of 45(?) degree celcius.

Correction:
Das Eiklar besteht aus zwei Arten von Eiweiß: dem Ovalbumin und dem Conalbumin. Das Conalbumin beginnt bei 61.5°C und das Ovalbumin bei 84.5°C zu gerinnen. Der Dotter beginnt bei 65°C zu stocken.

So 60-80 degree celcius are needed to print in egg.

Or go all the way: add printing with calcium and print your very own eggs in any shape you like.

Maybe man could finally get rid of mass hen factories?

In the OpenSCAD file you can set the volume of the egg to how big eggs in your neck of the wood are.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_egg_sizes

Says the most commanly sold eggs in Amerika are large (L) with 46ml.

In Europe this corresponces to a medium egg.

This, I have set it to 46ml.

 What kind of a closing mechanism has yours?
I have one of these (A very different design) that's made of bakelite.

Dating it at... effin' OLD.

And the instructions for that one states you should boil and peel first, then compress until the egg is cool.  For relish plates and such.

It was funny to see this here!
 I checked out the old YPS magazine.

The description says you're supposed to use a soft boiled egg, insert it in the box and let it cool down over  nightin the fridge.

Could you post a picture of a square egg?  This is really cool and I'd love to see an example!
 I have no 3d printer, thus no square egg.

Sorry.

Also you can get cheap forms on ebay with all sorts of shapes (car, cats etc.)

@TakeItAndRun 
Printing with egg yolk crossed my mind before :-) Would be fun but I expect a big mess.
Speaking of big mess: When I tried the "Die Maschine, die eckige Eier macht" from the YPS magazine, I was not very patient and the egg was still too soft :D
 
Thats where I first saw the square egg maker.

Do you think YPS invented it or was it around before?
