EleksEgg is alive

It arrived in a nice carry case and was super easy to assemble (even without instructions).

The funny thing though, after it's assembled the case is about 1/4" too shallow for the machine to fit and close the lid... it's sooooo close and you can flex it and make it close but it pops open again.

So after putting it together I clicked the new EleksEgg option in the T2Laser menu and it immediately started working. The axis were correct, or at least how I expected it to be (X is around the egg and Y is bottom to top), you could easily swap it.

The picture shows the very first thing it "wrote", a quick Sketch and it looks great.

Tomorrow I will try some golf balls and whatever else I can find to fit   ::)

So now I can officially say that T2Laser supports the full range of Eleks machines; laser, cnc, draw and egg.

Super cool!
So does this mean we can start doing rings or round things?

I guess so... but it's a pen only, no laser (although you may be able to fix that).

You could just buy this, disconnect all the wires and run the stepper to your laser driver to make a rotary tool but I think it would be more expensive than just buying the parts.
