Summary

Easter Egg Holder Bunnies are fun prints that add a unique, decorative and fun dimension to your Easter Eggs.

Easter Eggs are all a similar shape but different manufacturers Eggs vary quite a lot. The Easter Egg Holder Bunnies can be scaled to suit almost any Easter Egg. Scaling is simple... just choose the .stl closest in size to your egg/s. Two have been provided but both are the same width to keep the print time / filament usage down (otherwise big ones become a big / long print). When scaling it is important to scale uniformly to preserve the internal shaping so the egg in place.

To scale just follow these steps...

(1) Accurately measure the total length of your Easter Egg
(2) Choose the .stl closest to your Easter Eggs length. 50mm and 65mm have been provided.
(3) Divide the length of your Easter Egg by the .stl files measurement (eg. 40mm egg divided into he 50mm .stl = 80% of standard scale)
(4) Scale your Easter Egg Holder Bunny before slicing / exporting the file

Following this simple process should enable you to uniformly scale the Easter Egg Bunny Holders to accommodate your Easter Eggs...

These are cool!!!! Nieces and Nephews should like them

How do you print this without supports ?

On the underside the centre of the eye prints in mid air and the centre of the ear is unsupported.

As long as you are printing with PLA and your machine has an effective filament cooling fan it will bridge the recessed bottom ear and also manage the eye outset / angles applied okay. The photos show the result when printed on a well set up machine.

anyone know the size of the kinder surprise eggs??

i can get them but i rather start printing them ahead of time lol

From memory the 65mm version is made for the Kinder Surprise eggs... I just don't have one to check but the larger one was definitely intended to hold these particular eggs.

Happy Easter!

Would be nice if America had Kinder surprise eggs

ISTR that the plastic parts were deemed a choking hazard, or something.

...but at least you can scale the file to allow other size eggs to be inserted into it. The details provided explains how to do that.

Your egg measurements are way off mine. What are those based on American chickens? ;p
All in all great job, really great idea! :-)

Tha size / shape of different eggs was always going to be an issue which is why I added two versions and scaling instructions. Shape wise I used eggs that are sold world wide and,while not perfect in all cases they are generally pretty good when scaled as suggested.... but you're right that you can't scale the down to the size of some small solid easter eggs.... with hollow eggs they're fine. Pleased you like the idea
