    I just unplugged the Y axis, and used that for the 4th motor.

    I used Fusion for the egg, but I any cam could have been used, as long as your model is rotational uniform. See attached stl.

    For the engraving I used F-engrave, where I scaled the image in the y-axis to account for the gearing.
