3D model description

This is a mini lathe for coloring eggs. It is parent driven, and tooling is controlled by children. Happy Easter!

3D printing settings

Print all pieces with 2 shells and 10% infill.

You will need to print out two egg_holder2.stl files.
All posts should be printed with support. These were the only pieces we had with support. Helper disks on the slider.stl file and the gear_house.stl are recommended to prevent warping. All posts made through corresponding pieces. See picture for assembly. A small wood screw fits into the back hole on the slider mechanism to lock it in place on the ways. Ways should be glued into the gear house.
