3D Printed Easter Eggshells? Have you ever thought about using a 3D printer to create your Easter eggs? Well, it looks like someone did.
The introduction of the 3D printer has given the art world a whole new level of imagination. Artists can use the technology to produce immensely complicated works using a variety of mediums such as stone, ceramic, plastic, and more. Due to the provided flexibility, 3D printers are being used by artists all around the world. Here we present the 3D printed Easter eggshells series by DaveMakesStuff who created ten different decorative Easter eggshells. All the contents within the eggshell are secured with a threaded insert on the bottom.

Easter Egg number 1
The first prototype of the Easter eggshell series draws its design inspiration from the gyroid triply periodic minimum surface.
Easter Egg number 2
Number two of the ten Easter Eggshells series is a lattice design based on the Kelvin graph.
Easter Egg number 3
The third of ten Easter Eggshells series is a particular lattice design made from a square honeycomb that has been rotated.
Easter Egg number 4
The splitP triply periodic minimum surface served as the inspiration for the fourth of ten Easter Eggshell series.
Easter Egg number 5
The fifth in the Easter Eggshell series gets its impression from a reoriented gyroid triply periodic minimal surface.
Easter Egg number 6
As the sixth form of the Easter eggshell series, this particular design is based on a vertical column lattice.
Easter Egg number 7
The seventh of ten Easter eggshell series is a particular design that gets inspiration from the Schwarz D (diamond) triply periodic minimum surface.
Easter Egg number 8
The eighth of Easter eggshells draws inspiration from the Fischer-Koch S triply periodic minimal surface.
Easter Egg number 9
Last but not least, a hexagonal honeycomb is an inspiration for this design.
Easter Egg number 10
Finally, the Schoen F-RD triply periodic minimum surface provided the inspiration for this design.
