Simple Boole

If an object is place hierarchical in the Egg-Object 2, it will be subtracted from the egg per internal Boole-object.

Invert Boole

Inverts the internal Boole-object and the respective intersections become visible. 

Extensions

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. 

Radius yolk

Changes the radius of the yolk sphere and thereby, the cavity inside the egg white, too. 

Gap

Creates a gap between the three parts of the egg. 

Tri-Booler

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

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.
