Once you have a board d-signed (I use Eagle but have been recently thinking about switching back to KiCad), you can export what are called 'gerber' files to a .zip folder. Eagle has a button in the top-right of the window for this, that looks like a tiny factory. You can also do ```File -> Cam Processor```.

If you'd like to make your own hardware for the network, I recommend using the [ATKBreadBoardBoard](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/atkbreadboardboard) whose documentation also includes a 'daughter' board starter - this will let you plug some new circuitry right onto the available XMEGA pinouts, and use known-to-work programming, voltage regulation, and network interface hardware.
