After shorting out yet another board I decided to make some coasters to protect my revision B and revision C beagleboards. It took me a few hours to get the hang of openscad and then tweak the dimensions to account for ABS shrinkage, but it's finally working.
With a 3mm edge thickness this maxed out my buildarea using a makergear bighead, the stock nozzle might have a bit more clearance.
Support for the slightly bigger beagleboard-xM will follow later once I have countersunk the bolts on my platform, it's too big to print otherwise.
Update: upload version for beagleboard-xM
The most up to date version is kept at http://gitorious.org/hacks/things/trees/master
Print the STL and push in a board. You can also open the scad file to make the edge thicker, add stubs for the screw holes, etc. Most, if not all parameters are in the top of the file and can be changed at will.
