We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Created to communicate the animal welfare benefits of genuine free range eggs using free range eggs as the print medium.
1 dozen individual designs allow a whole carton's worth of unique messages to be created.
The idea was spawned as an alternative easter gift for someone who doesn't normally buy free range eggs.
Print the designs on an EggBot printer using Inkscape with the EggBot extensions.
Text was created using the Hershey Text extension.
I experienced some anomalies when printing which were likely mechanical artifacts that can be corrected by adjusting the EggBot correctly.
However, me being me, I 'calibrated' the design instead of calibrating the machine. I have included one 'calibrated' design image for reference but the remainder are unadulterated and should work if your EggBot is functioning/calibrated correctly.
