The Eggbot is an open-source art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from the size of a ping pong ball size to that of a small grapefruit-- roughly 1.25 to 4.25 inches in diameter (4 - 10 cm). Super adjustable; designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally difficult to print on. Eggbot can print on other spherical or elliptical objects such as golf balls, light bulbs, holiday ornaments and the like.

Assembly of this machine was our very first workshop meetup at Tinkersmiths. A dozen people showed up to kick off what has become a thriving culture of over 650 makers.

Please stop by Tinkersmiths and spend a little time on the egg-bot. Its more fun than you think.
