A rather whimsical egg cup shaped like a chick.
I looked at the existing egg cup designs on Thingiverse and rather liked http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7834 by bpijls. So I set out to design something similar for chicken eggs.
This model holds eggs that are 42-46mm diameter. To fit larger eggs, you can either scale the .stl model or edit the parts directly in Tinkercad https://tinkercad.com/things/hvw1rSKFOVa
The overhang at the base of the cup can be difficult to print.
I succeeded to print with:
â€¢ 0.35 layer height
â€¢ 4 perimeter shells
â€¢ 35% infill using a concentric pattern
â€¢ switching the cooling fan on only after the first 20 layers
â€¢ no supports (but you might need them)
Oh, and be very gentle removing the cup from the build platform, many chick feet have been harmed in the making of this thing.
