While that *is* true vector clip art, it isn’t actually “eggbot ready,” because of the way that it’s designed.

Try opening up the file in Inkscape, and looking at where the lines actually are.  Select all, and then ungroup everything.  If you look at how that drawing is made, all of the white parts inside the flower are actually white-filled regions on a larger back backdrop.    To see how the Eggbot would actually draw it, select all, turn the fill type to “no paint” (none), and select a consistent stroke width, say 1 px.  Then, you’ll see all the same hidden lines that the Eggbot will. 

It is possible to “fix” this, by going and deleting all of the hidden lines (and Inkscape has some pretty neat “boolean” tools that can help) but clip art is never a “sure thing.”
