Eggs 2014


Sine waves were a popular choice for this year’s eggs. And the Minecraft pigs were in demand as always.

All the eggs pictures except the pigs were plotted directly from Processing, the pigs were drawn using Inkscape.

I’ll post the files to Github within  a couple weeks.

update: code and svg files are now available on Github.

  1. hi david, I am writing from india, tried your code on a PC with processing 2.2, strangely I am getting an error ”
    Could not find a port that looked like the eggbot
    test complete

    am I missing any library here?


    1. I’m not sure. I have a mac and am not familiar with the specifics of working on a PC. I suspect you need to have the eggbot available on one of the com ports. Maybe the eggbot documentation has something about this?

  2. Same here with Processing 3.4 on Win11, I installed ControlP5 but got the same error message. It is possible to specify the com port manually?

    1. I’m not familiar with what the ports look like on Windows. The port is specified in EggbotCanvas file (line 39 in the example I am looking at). It reads:

      if (ports[i].indexOf(“/dev/tty.usbmodem”)==0){

      You can change the “/dev/tty.usbmodem” string to the appropriate string for a Windows PC.

      To determine what the ports are called, you can print the results of Serial.list() (which is on line 34 of EggbotCanvas in the example I am looking at).
