Eggbot is designed to work well on Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. To use it, you'll need to install certain software on your computer.
The EggBot extensions for Inkscape are included with, and installed by, the AxiDraw software installers. To install the software please follow the specific directions for your platform on the AxiDraw installation page. Detailed instructions are provided for Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. (We are currently recommending software install version 3.9.4 for EggBot users; the installation page link goes to the version for 3.9.4.)
We encourage EggBot users to update the latest firmware version. Once your EggBot software is up and running, you can check which version of the firmware you have by selecting the "Manual" tab of EggBot Control, picking "Check EBB Version" from the menu there, and clicking Apply.
EBB Firmware versions 2.4.6 and newer contain performance improvements and bug fixes that can prevent certain types of errors.
