...or "omelette" if you prefer.

These files are for plotting an omelet recipe on eggs using an Eggbot. Use the file omelet.svg or omelet-1-serving.svg if you park the "pointy" end of your eggs at the egg motor cup. Use omelet-flipped.svg or omelet-1-serving-flipped.svg if, like me, you park the fat end of your eggs at the egg motor's egg cup. (Less slippage when you do that, eh?)

Note that the text is sized such that you don't need a nano sized pen tip: I used a Sharpie Ultra Fine for the pictured egg.

So how many servings for omelet.svg and omelet-flipped.svg? Those two files have a "2 serving" recipe which calls for two eggs. If you desire a more self-contained recipe, then go with the "1 serving" variants. And, if you need nutrition info, well just see http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7232 and then mentally add in the 2 or 1 Tbsp of cream and 3/4 or 1/2 Tbsp of butter. (Butter is about 100 calories per Tbsp and there's about 50 calories per Tbsp for heavy cream [the yummy stuff].)

Bon appetit!


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.

And remember, you can't make omelets without breaking eggs.

I cannot download the files individually, they just open as a internet explorer tab. When I download it as a zip file and import the one I want into Inkscape the text is diagonal and is read as a photo, not text and can't be proportionally resized or straitened. How can I get it to work?

they just open as a internet explorer tab.

They do that because IE knows how to display svg. Just tell IE to save them as a file. Or, google how to download a link as a file rather than displaying it. Usually, you right click on the link and select from a pop-up menu. But since I don't use IE nor Windows, I'm not in a position to tell you how to use IE.

I want into Inkscape the text is diagonal...

It's supposed to be diagonal -- that's how it wraps around the egg in s spiral.

and is read as a photo, not text and can't be proportionally resized or straitened. How can I get it to work?

Works for me. In Things, I

  1. clicked on omellet.svg, my Chrome web browser displayed it.
  2. In my web browser, I save the page to a file and it saves as omellete.svg
  3. I launch Inkscape and open omellete.svg
  4. I click on the text and the entire text block is selected -- tall, LONG, rectangle
  5. I can stretch and resize it.

How can I download these files to work with Inkscape?

am looking for someone to do a custom print on an egg- - do you take orders?

can reach me at http://www.kengoldmandesign.comwww.kengoldmandesign.com

I myself do not do custom printing on eggs. However, I suggest that you contact the kind folks at http://evilmadscience.com/http://evilmadscience.com/ . They are the folks who brought the Eggbot to market and sell it. They might kno of someone with interest in custom printing eggs. There's at least one group who, for charity, are printing about 1,000 wooden eggs, for example.
