In this instructables I will show you how to make your own Egg-Bot controlled with Arduino. I wanted to make it before but I thought it is too hard for me but I was wrong. It's easy to build so for sure everyone can do it.

Step 1: Parts

Below I add list of parts:

- stepper motor with 200 steps per revolution (x2)

I use 12V and 0,33A but you can use other.

- stepper motor driver A4988 (x2)

- arduino or atmega328

- power supply for stepper (I have 12V and 2A)

- micro servo

- plastic plate, wood

- 40cm screws x3 and 12 nuts for it's

- two lego wheels

- markers in different colors

- drill, knife, saw, screwdriver, double sided tape, wood glue, wire, soldering iron, rubber bands

- everything you need to make PCB link.

<p>The first time I have got amazing thing like . Thank you very much :)</p>
<p>awesome</p>
<p>Belo projeto. Estou fazendo a minha impressora de ovo, mais estou com dificuldades no funcionamento. J&aacute; baixei o Inkscape, a extens&atilde;o do Egg Bot. Agora n&atilde;o consigo configurar e testar. Poderia inserir outro Instructable descrevendo a configura&ccedil;&atilde;o e o funcionamento. Parab&eacute;ns pelo trabalho, espero que me ajude. </p>
Hi<br>For a instructable i missed some inforation about the Axis.<br>How to build this exenter in that way so that's the angle matches the way.So that the whole surface of the egg is reacheble.<br>Masure values would useful.<br>I got no idea,how long i.e. the slot must be.<br>Hope you have a few pic's on backside stepper mechanic<br>Anyway that's a funny thing
<p>i already build this instructable until stuck in coding for arduino, i confuse which file that copy to arduino IDE. could you give me step by step how to insert code and getting started with inkscape for eggbot. please help... :-(</p>
<p>awesome stuff.</p><p>can you give me tutorial how to upload code from github file to UNO please? i'm newbie , sorry. daniel.energi@gmail.com</p>
<p>hi! its awesome but i have not got a stepper motor can i use continues servo motor</p><p>and how to code it can you please help me</p>
<p>Hi!</p><p>Servos have 360 steps per revolution, steppers (with microstepping) have 3200 steps per revolution. So it can be to less to getting good print quality.</p><p>Try to find steppers in old printer or buy it. It isn't expensive now (in Poland) I can get one for $12.5.</p>
<p>hi! Can you give me a hand with the code??</p><p>I'd like to understand it better, please!!</p>
<p>Brawo! Dobra robota.</p><p>Jeśli potrzebujesz bardziej profesjonalnego przycięcia materiał&oacute;w (CNC) napisz, zrobię to dla Ciebie za darmo.</p><p>Bravo, good job</p><p>If You want professionally cutted elements (CNC) just write me. I make it for You for free.</p><p>tomekltek at gmail.com</p>
<p>Cześć</p><p>Wielkie dzięki. </p><p>Dzięki za propozycję ale udało mi się wyciąć wszystko ręcznie i działa całkiem dobrze więc nie będę już zmieniał. Ale dzięki za propozycję raz jeszcze.</p><p>Hi</p><p>Thanks </p><p>Thanks for proposition but I already cut all things by hand and it works pretty well so I won't change it. But thanks for proposition again.</p>
This is a great instructable! awesome job!
Thanks! :)
<p>Nice Project !!</p>
Thanks!
<p>hiii I am a student my project trach solar my probleme Arduino program for 1 stepper motor unipolar turns 9 am (7 am to 16h) and then retoure the initial state is wait 14 h (16h to 7h) pls help me and thank u very much </p>
<p>Nice build, say did you use conduit pipe for the bearings/sliders for the threaded rod? And what size bearing/rod combo did you use for the end of the mill that spins freely?</p>
<p>You should build a kit with all the parts to make this.</p>
Nice idea. It's probably possible but in shop in Poland. I will try to make it.
<p>Awesome Instructable, Voted for you in the Egg Contest!</p>
Thanks! :D
<p>Hello I'm from Brazil and I want to learn to ride a printer of this and understand a little electronics have a CNC and do not give to Mr. sending the formulas on how to build a machine of this.</p><p>I thank the contact and attention</p><p>My contact is: marceloricardo.2007@hotmail.com</p>
<p>How are you planning to ride it?</p>
I want to ride in the simplest possible way if applicable and must give your help
<p>This is very interesting! Like it!</p>
<p>How to run the sending commands program?</p><p>thank you!</p>
<p>Go to:</p><p>Spherebot-Host-GUI-master\build\release</p><p>and here you can find Spherebot_UI.exe. I propose to make a shortcut and copy it to desktop. </p>
<p>This is amazing. Great work. I am definitely going to try this. Voted for you. </p>
Thank you so much! And have fun when you will finish your eggbot :D
<p>You should try this firmware: <a href="https://github.com/cocktailyogi/EggDuino" rel="nofollow" style="">https://github.com/cocktailyogi/EggDuino</a> with original eggbot protocol! </p>
<p>Nice work. Eggs look great. Would be fun to add two pens for different colors. </p>
<p>You can always plot one color, swap the pen and plot a second image. </p>
<p>Thanks! :) </p><p>Right now I added a picture of the two color printing in to last step.</p>
<p>Very nice!</p><p>I wonder if you can replace the pen with a flex shaft attached to a dremmel? Filigreed eggs would be fun. </p>
<p>Basically this... </p><p><a href="http://shop.evilmadscientist.com/productsmenu/accessories/297" rel="nofollow">http://shop.evilmadscientist.com/productsmenu/acce...</a> </p>
Great ible !<br>Pen vibration solution: use a small spring to force the pen on the egg. Force the pen to move only vertically by a small tube for it to move in.
<p>Thanks, it's nice idea I will try it.</p>
<p>This is pretty rad. Thanks for sharing!</p>
<p>Thank you so much!</p>
