eggbot on baseballs

edited April 2013 in General
Anyone got an inkscape file or two for printing on a baseball?  The trick it seems is avoiding the seams...


  • If anyone is interested in printing on baseballs, I've created a template for this.  It's for standard league approved hard ball baseballs, but it could be easily adjusted to fit any ball with stitched seams.  The template has an outline of the area within the stitching and some dots for registration and alignment of the ball in the Eggbot.

  • Sure..I would like the template..thanks WBP!!
  • Boy, talk about a delayed response... I uploaded a copy of the "baseball template" file here: Template.svg

    There are several layers:

    1 & 2 are text from one of the baseballs I did, to show the alignment, etc. Modify, add graphics, etc to suit your needs.

    8 - registration dots, handy for a quick check of the alignment. The 4 circles are drawn by the Eggbot as a single dot.

    9 - safe area: should correspond to the area just inside the stitching on your baseball

    10 - stitching: I started with this - adjust the size until it matches the stitching on your baseball. It doesn't have to be perfect.

    You could probably just skip layer 10 and just use 9 to get the alignment right, then go from there...
