The definition of the English word "egg" ready to print on your very own egg (with an Eggbot, of course). A great visual aid for those learning English!

The concept for this design was inspired by a similar design by Tim Docker. And, BTW, doing this design was my impetus for writing the Spiral Text Eggbot extension for the Eggbot. So, foreign language speakers out there: you too can render your language version of this design using that extension.


The drawing is 800 x 3200 pixels and consists of two layers:

1 - test: this is a test layer. Plot it with or without a pen to check the framing of your egg. It has two tiny, horizontal strokes at y=0 and y=800.

2 - text: this is the layer with the recipe. Plot it after you have things centered to your liking.

Use the "Layers" tab of the Eggbot Control extension to plot each layer individually.

NOTE BENE: These files wrap the text around and around the egg by using the Eggbot Control's "Egg (x) axis wraps around" option. Be sure to set that option on the "Options" tab of the Eggbot Control extension and then click the "Apply" button.

The egg shown here was drawn using a 005 Pigma Micron fibre tip technical pen.
