EggBot Ostrich Bausatz
Der EggBot ist ein OpenSource Kunstroboter mit diesem lassen
Kugelförmige Objekte automatisiert bemalen (optional auch Gravieren).
Name EggBot hängt damit zusammen, das er meist zum bemalen von Eiern
eingesetzt wird, aber es lassen sich auch Golfbälle, Glühlampen, kleine
Kürbisse oder mit ein paar Modifikationen auch Gläser bemalen.
The Ostrich EggBot kit is a special version of The Original EggBot kit
with an extra-large chassis that fits larger objects, up to 6.25" in
Both models-- the original and this extra large one
--are open-source art robots capable of drawing on the surfaces of
spherical or egg-shaped objects. They are descendents of the very first
EggBot, designed by Bruce Shapiro, dating back to 1990.
is super adjustable, and is designed to draw on all kinds of things
that are normally "impossible" to print on. Not just eggs but pool
balls, light bulbs, mini pumpkins, and even things like wine glasses. In
the photos, you can see just a few of the things that you can make with
an Ostrich EggBot: Incredible decorated glass balls, christmas
ornaments, emu eggs, and even chicken eggs.
The Ostrich EggBot
chassis is the largest EggBot model, and can only hold larger objects.
It can print on egg-shaped objects from as small as a chicken egg up
through (small-size) footballs and very large ostrich eggs, up to 6.25
inches (16 cm) in diameter. It also accommodates spherical objects in
the range of roughly 1.6 to 6.25 inches in diameter (4 - 16 cm).
are now shipping Ostrich EggBot version 2.0, which has been gently
redesigned with a number of minor refinements and upgrades for better
stiffness and performance. The chassis is CNC cut right at our shop in
California, out of melamine-faced MDF, with laser engraved calibration
and assembly marks. The pen and egg motors are high-torque precision
stepping motors, and the pen lift mechanism is a quiet and reliable
servo motor. Brass thumbscrews are provided as standard hardware.
kit is easy to assemble in an hour or so, and only requires a couple of
basic tools like miniature Phillips-head and flathead screwdrivers.
You'll also need a recent-vintage computer with an available USB port
(Mac, Windows or Linux), plus internet access to download assembly
instructions and necessary software.
The Ostrich EggBot kit
comes complete with a fully assembled and tested EiBotBoard v2.0 (EBB)
USB interface/motor driver board. No soldering or programming are
The EBB allows your computer to directly control the
stepper and servo motors. The onboard 16X microstepping driver chips
along with the 200 step/revolution stepper motors give a combined
resolution of 3200 steps/revolution in both axes. A universal-input
plug-in power supply (9 V 1.5 A) is included with the EggBot kit, as is a
USB cable. The EggBot is normally controlled through a set of
open-source extensions to Inkscape, the excellent, popular and free
vector graphics program.
Basic operation is much like that of a
printer driver: you import or make a drawing in Inkscape, and use the
extensions to plot your drawing onto whatever object you've mounted in
the EggBot. It's all handled through an easy to use graphical user
interface, and works cleanly on Mac, Windows and Linux.
standard pen holder included with the EggBot kit is designed to fit
various art pens including Sharpie Ultra Fine Point pens. However, it
can actually fit almost any pen (or pencil, or crayon, or just about
anything else) of similar size. If you want to use a pen that doesn't
fit, the pen holder is made of wood and can be enlarged to suit your
taste. (Extras and blanks can also be found here on our index of EggBot
You can even fit a lot of things that aren't pens. A
common application of the Ostrich EggBot is using a pencil to mark up
an egg for later carving with handheld tools. We also offer an electric
kistka attachment for traditional wax-resist egg decorating, as well as a
diamond point engraving tool, capable of etching and engraving hard
materials like glass, stone, and ceramic.
