Thank you very much for your assistance. Your advice was just on point.

I followed your suggestions above, and finally I have a working Eggbot that talks to my MacBook Pro. Finding the file ebb_serial.py in Mac OS was a challenge.

All I need to do now is to caliberate the Eggbot motors and servo. If you have any suggestions in this regard from your experience working on it, please let me know.

I hope that other Mac users will find your instructions helpful. Hurray .. Smile

Thanks again.

Ha yes, calibration is the next challenge! Getting the egg centered so it rotates around evenly is important but what I found to be the most important thing was the pen arm adjustment. It's hard to explain in text but I'll try: the part of the pen arm that connects/fits over the servo post needs to be pushed further down on the post or pulled up off of the post slightly so that the pen in the down position is (mostly) straight up and down. Before I did this, the drawings were kinda messed up on the egg but after they are looking pretty good! I think the guide explains this but I think it took me longer to figure out without the aid of a picture showing what is required.
