Evil Mad Scientist Labs have updated their beloved open-source hardware Eggbot, a plotter that draws on curved surfaces, with a new all-metal model called the Eggbot Pro.
The standard pen holder included with the EggBot kit is designed to fit various art pens including Sharpie Ultra Fine Point and Sharpie Fine Point pens. However, it can actually fit almost any pen of similar size.
You can even fit a lot of things that aren't pens. One example: We offer a diamond point engraving tool for EggBot (shown here), capable of etching and engraving hard materials like glass, stone, and ceramic.
And, if decorating eggs is your focus, check out our Electro-Kistka attachment, capable of painting wax onto eggs for traditional wax-resist and dye (batik) processes.
