    This is how the "egg holding part" is looking without "the sticky tack". I have not added the pen holder or the electronics yet.

    Looks good, my man!

    BTW, where is the bearing in the part hat presses the egg? In the black ring in the end?

    Here's how the pen holder is looking. I had to "stagger" those fine screws on the distal end of the hinge because I somehow snapped a screw head off when tightening. I've updated the BOM (parts list).

    I connected the electronics together, but need to double-check again before I turn on the power. The power supply I will use is from a Linksys E3000 and seems to fit the board connector well.

    Here's it looks put together. I accidentally ordered two nema17 motor plates, but will replace one nema17 plate with a nema23 plate in the near future. Will install Inkscape v0.91 and the EBB software v2.50.
