For Easter, GeekPhysical wanted to celebrate by decorating eggs: hence, the Eggbot was born, and Geekster replaced Easter. Happy Geekster, from us to you.
Eggbot is a CNC plotter for Easter Eggs on a small scale, built to fit your average egg and accommodate for the curvature of the egg’s surface. We explored different concepts in plotting, CNC controls, servo controls and mapping curved surfaces in this project and it led directly to our work on the Giant Printer. Amusingly, we were not the only ones to create an “Eggbot”, read about our Easter egg adventures with eggbot here (technical) and here (introducing other eggbots).
