If the features shell, egg white and yolk are disabled, Egg-Object 2 acts like the previous version.
Defines the egg’s height – can be changed numerical or via vertical handle in the editor.
Defines the egg’s diameter – can be changed numerical or via horizontal handle in the editor.
Defines, how coarse or fine the egg’s mesh is segmented.
Offers five mesh-options, known from the sphere object.
Aligns the egg to an axis
Lets the egg stand on its axis. When disabled, the axis is in the center of the egg.

If an object is place hierarchical in the Egg-Object 2, it will be subtracted from the egg per internal Boole-object.
Inverts the internal Boole-object and the respective intersections become visible.
If one or more of the options shell, egg white or yolk are enabled, the Egg-Object 2 gets appropriate inner values.
Radius egg white
Defines the egg white’s diameter and as a result, the thickness of the shell, too.
Changes the radius of the yolk sphere and thereby, the cavity inside the egg white, too.
Creates a gap between the three parts of the egg.
Hierarchically placed objects in the Egg-Object 2 get substracted from the egg.
If there is only one child object, it influences shell, egg white and yolk. If there are two child objects, the first one influences the shell, and the second egg white and yolk. If there are three child objects, every part of the egg gets its own Boole-object.
Texturing, acts similar to the Tri-Booler.
If the Egg-Object 2 gets a material – whichs means a texture tag, shell, egg white and yolk will have this material. If there are two texture tags, the shell gets the first, egg white and yolk the second material. If there are three texture tags, every part of the egg gets its own material.
