EggBot has hatched! The egg-painting robot is now ready for use in the Maker Zone. Watch the video below for some instructions about how to create a design for EggBot to draw:
Using the pattern here, our 3D printers and laser cutter, and a bunch of motors, wires, and circuit boards, we creates a machine that draws designs on eggs. Come by and see it in action!
Everyone is welcome to use the EggBot! If you’re not sure what kind of design to try, come by the Maker Zone to get some ideas and see some examples.
Make a design anytime! Drop by AL 207 from 8-11am or from 1-5pm on weekdays to get it drawn onto an egg shell.
EggBot is currently running in the Maker Zone.
Day 6 (March 10) — We ran our first successful test!
Day 5 (March 5) — We put all the parts together and got the wiring all connected.
Day 4 (March 3) — We have assembled the wooden frame and printed out the 3D-printed parts.
Day 3 (March 2) — The laser cutter has completed cutting out the parts for the wood frame! The main body of the machine is ready to be assembled.
Day 2 (Feb 26) — We tested the motors by plugging them into the Arduino board and making sure we could control how they each spin.
Day 1 (Feb 24) — We used the Cricut to cut the laser cut pieces out of poster board in order to test the dimensions before having them cut out of wood.
