Modelling and Designing of Birds Eggs for 3D Printing (Easter 2022)

A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

JRR Tolkien, The Hobbit

Easter 2022 is at the door, and also the occasion for the traditional appointment to talk about eggs and their mathematical shapes. This year with the help of my sons, we have created the following Instructables for STEM education.

The project aims to show how to use a simple mathematical model used to generate the 3D form of real bird eggs utilizing a couple of parameters.The 3D egg models can be saved as an STL file and then printed using a 3D printer. The printed egg can be painted or modified with a CAD program to add functionalities for egg-based gadgets or toys. An example of a modification to create a LED decorated egg is explained in detail. The topics have been covered in previous article, and the interested reader can complement the information in the Instructable with other information provided in the following articles:

The Instructable gives the possibility to 3D print and modify the 3D shape of bird eggs. It can be used for research, teaching and fun. I hope you will enjoy it and constructive comments, and suggestions are always very welcome!

AUGURO A TUTTI I LETTORI UNA BUONA PASQUA E PACE IN TERRA

WÜNSCHT ALLEN LESERN FROHE OSTERN UND FRIEDEN AUF ERDEN

I WISH TO READER A HAPPY EASTER AND PEACE ON EARTH
