EggBot Extensions for Inkscape, v2.4.0

This software is provided to control the Original Egg-Bot, by Evil Mad Scientist.
More information at http://egg-bot.com

The software is designed as a set of extensions to Inkscape, and includes the software that actually drives the robot, as well as a number of vector art utilities, such as Hershey Text.

Also available -- included with installers or as a separate download -- over 100 example files in our sample set. :D


All users: You must have Inkscape installed on your computer, prior to installing the software. Download Inkscape from http://inkscape.org/ .

Mac users: Download and open EggBot v2.4.0.dmg. Run the EggBot Installer, and (optionally) copy the EggBot Example set onto your drive.

Yosemite (MacOS X 10.10) users will need to begin with a fresh copy of Inkscape 0.48.5.

Windows users: Download EggBot_240A.exe. Run the installer. This new version installs the (UBW) USB driver, and gives you the option to install the EggBot Example set as well.

Linux users: Download and extract EggBot_extensions_v2.4.0.zip. Copy the contents of the "extensions" directory to: .config/inkscape/extensions/ Optionally, download the example files set as well.

This is our first release in more than a year, and incorporates a number of bug fixes, enhancements, and fixes for changes in Inkscape and MacOS X. This version is designed for compatibility with Inkscape 0.48.5

  • #13 Error with Spiral Text and Name Poem extensions
  • #5, StippleGen code is now in the repository and updated for Processing 2. (May not be up to date with latest Processing release, still)
