A simple parametric egg script. I have included a few sample eggs but the parameters allow for any size, "stretch", and angle. These parameters are clearly labeled at the top of the script.


Adjust the parameters to get your custom egg or print one of the pre-made STLs.

Bonus points for feeding alternating filament colors (or using a marker to color the incoming filament) to get stripes.

Would be great if the "thing" makers would calibrate their printers before posting messy pics of their projects. That egg looks pretty bad and your printer settings should be looked at.

The egg I printed has a radius value of 22 and an angle value of 0, to fit in this egg cup: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6620http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
