Step 1: 3D Printing
To make the egg holder you will need either a 3D Printer or Laser Cutter/CNC Router. If you are using a 3D Printer, simply print out the attached file using your preferred settings. If you have a Laser Cutter/CNC Router, you can import the file into Autodesk's 123D Make software to slice the .stl file into 2D layers that you can then cut out of your desired material.
If you find that the holder is supporting your Easter egg's too loosely or tightly, scale the .stl file in the X, Y, or Z and print/cut again.
You can also download the .stl file from Thingiverse
Step 2: Complete!
Your finished 3D printed egg throne should look like this. Simply place the egg atop the throne for painting and use it afterwards to display your creation.
