How do I animate a rolling Egg without dynamics?? Is there any way to constraint it so I can avoid interpenetrations??

Any suggestions???

Try the "makeRoll" command (read the doc for info).

This is a mel script that sets up an expression on your object.
For example create a polySphere then do:

makeRoll pSphere1 0 false 1;

Then make the frame greater than 1 and translate the sphere to see how the expression works( when you translate at the start frame it treats it as the initial rotation state).
