Might be difficult since they're using a closed design.

My understanding was that the frame was the only part that wasn't open at this point and iirc that only started with the Replicator 2's metal frame, which leads me to believe the electronics is open. Did I miss something?

So I went searching and found this which has schematics and may be the same as your board.

What controller board and firmware are you using? I expect that will be a siginficant part of making it work, more important than if you are using an OrdBot or RepRap Mendel platform or something similar.
