IdeaMaker Textured Egg

After watching Maker Muse's Incredibly Detailed Easter Eggs using IdeaMaker, I tried setting up my Prusa i3 MK3S+ in IdeaMaker using the) settings downloaded from raise3D. After slicing (8 hour print not sure if that is normal) the Prusa screen showed that the gcode was incomplete.

Has anyone had any luck setting up their printer to print textured Easter eggs?

Thanks

IdeaMaker inserts a large image as encoded data at the end of the gcode file. Prusa firmware looks for shutdown gcode at the end of the file. The error is mostly harmless, but you have to reset the printer at the end of the job. There is an option in recent versions of ideaMaker to disable embedding the image.
