What modifications will I need to be able to print it or have you got a design for an arduino enclosure that has bit beam edges.

I printed a few bitbeams and my wife said they were the prettiest thing I had printed yet. Use a translucent orange. Were pretty.

Was thinking an eggbot would be a good project for bitbeam.
