Because I'm not allowed to use the e*bot word, I renamed this thing to egg drawer.
this is a complete printable egg drawer
it is also work in progress (for now) but submitting it next week seems a little bit silly to me.
for now, the egg mountings are still to be designed (maybe we can 'borrow' them from somewhere).
!! AND SOMEONE DID, see hbs's page http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:13960 for those things, Thanks.
new pen holder (PenHolder-7.stl)

this design is moved to https://www.youmagine.com/designs/eggbot

A helpful placeholder to show people that you've moved all of your designs to YOUMAGINE because of Thingiverse/Makerbot's ludicrous attempt at patenting for themselves designs which were created by people within their community:



print all parts,
mount them together.

see the spherebot for software and electronics http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7656

Clear Holes with 4mm and 6mm drills.
put a 6mm brass tube in the 6mm holes;

the penholder needs to be mounted using a m2 bold and nut.
there are also holes for a little spring for in the penholder peases

Mount everything together using M4 wires and nuts

instructions follow soon,
last parts do so too.

have fun with it ;-)


1) Fill up with rage
2) Move your designs off of Thingiverse
3) Replace them with this file.

I've put mine together but don't have it working quite right. Tried printing the Hello World example from the Eggbot plugin set and all I managed to get was an equator drawn on the egg. The stepper for the Pen arm doesn't do anything other than twitch. A good way to test is with a plastic egg and a dry erase marker. Failures are just a quick cleanup with a tissue.

On a side note the Part List above says you need 1 MotorPaneBack and 2 Motor-Z-AsMount-2 but I think those quantities are reversed.

I made one! While printing made
​​minor adjustments to the 3D models: SidePart-3 divided into 4 parts (single is not fit to my Makerbot), changed the Penholder and Y-moun-5 for my servo (increased contact area for the lever and simplified servo holder). If the files are needed, I can "make a derivative". Eggcups by rrhb.
design creates a good impression :) Electronics is not ready yet.

Send me this 4 parts and other changed files, pls

Do derivative!!! Thanks

I'm going to have to figure out how to split part 3 into two so I can make one on my Cupcake. It would be easy enough to fuse the halves back together with acetone based on my experimenting.

I tried splitting part 3 into two pieces that dovetailed together (using dovetail.scad) but the dovetail was too small to be reliably laid down in PLA with my extruder. I ended up just splitting it in half and plan to just glue it together with acetone or superglue or something just like you.

I used the import_stl() function in OpenSCAD (after running the STL through the NetFabb fixer), and then union() and difference() operations with a large cube to get the two halves.

Thanks for the tips. I have yet to try, but, Easter is almost here, so I'd better get moving.

I've made an eggcup holder SCAD and STL at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:13960http://www.thingiverse.com/thi.... Feel free to incorporate/borrow or link to it as appropriate to "finish" this thing. I'm still curious as to whether anyone has built one entirely from this design.

Eggcup holders for SphereBot / Completely Printable Eggbot
by rrhb

has someone built a completed, working eggbot with this design yet? I built a spherebot http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7656http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... and it works but like the idea of a fully printable version.

by Zaggo

Though it could break the egg or not fit all eggs or round objects

an egg holder would be like 7 lines in openscad ;)

wow i really like the idea of this!

I have some experience with Inventor if you need any tips/help :)

You've made my Easter weekend! I had an EiBotBoard, 2 steppers and a servo waiting for this!!!! :-D

OK so I'm lucky I upgraded my T-O-M to 170mm build height or else part 3 exceeds the max build area of the standard T-O-M (120x120x106). I flipped it verticle and pray the top bar doesn't sag too bad. Lucklily it's not critical if it does sag.

Daar is ie dan mooi werk hoor ;-) (finally there it is ;-)

Yes Peter, it took me a while (6 months or so) to design this thing =-O. I'd also had to build an Ultimaker, an Ultirouter, learn Inventor, repaire my computer, have a little vacation and a couple of other things in between O:-)

BTW, I'm very glad that someone else did do the software and electronics (see http://thingiverse.com/thing:7656thingiverse.com/thing:7656 ), otherwise it would have taken me an other half year
