DUET 2 MAESTRO

THE LATEST GENERATION

OPEN SOURCE 3D PRINTER CONTROLLER BOARD


Prices start at $99. Duet 2 Maestro control boards will ship starting Q3, 2018.


CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DUET3D

 

DESIGNED IN THE UK

DELIVERED FROM THE US

Duet 2 Maestro is a latest generation open source 3D printer controller board, co-designed by the Duet3D and M3D teams. It serves as a conductor directing the movement of your 3D printer, which is why we call it the Maestro. Feature highlights include five-axis motion control via Trinamic TMC2224 “Quiet Movement” stepper motor drivers with 256 microstep resolution, 120MHz ARM M4 processor, USB and ethernet interfaces, and an ecosystem of pre-existing add-ons and future expansion opportunities. The Maestro comes ready to run your 3D printer or other machine control project using the well-established, open source RepRapFirmware.

Super Quiet TMC2224 Stepper Drivers
Single wire UART controlled stepper drivers capable of up to 256 microstepping. Current and microsteps can both be changed on the fly for optimum speed and power efficiency.

Dual Extruders
Three (3) heater/thermistor channels for a heated bed and two (2) extruders. Three (3) PWM controllable and one (1) always-on fan. These can be run from a combination of input voltage, onboard 5V or external 5V for added flexibility.

High Power Rating
Each stepper driver is expected to be capable of up to a 1.6A motor winding current, with further increase possible with added thermal considerations. The bed heater channel is specifically designed for high currents of up to 18A (to be confirmed by thermal tests). Input voltage is flexible from 12 to 28V. Power loss recovery is supported.

  • NETWORK CONNECTIVITY

Dedicated Ethernet Module
The main processor is free to do precise stepper pulse timing and implement other advanced features while the low level networking is handled by the dedicated networking module.

Flexible
Connect via PC, table or smartphone on the same network: there is no need for an app install or internet connectivity. Also connect via USB/serial if desired.

Cable-Free Control for Untethered Printing
Use your printer in any room covered by your WiFi (with adapter, not included) or Ethernet network. No need to be tethered by USB cabling any more. 512MB microSD card is included for storage, 8GB add-on is available.

Security
The Duet 2 Maestro does not need to be connected to the internet; it can be kept on a local network for added security.

  • A PLEASURE TO USE

Easy and Convenient
Connect directly to your printer from any modern web browser. Control your printer, upload and start prints from the browser. Monitor prints from an external IP webcam (not included).

Most Printers Supported
All common 3D printer geometries are supported: Cartesian, Delta, CoreXY, IDEX, SCARA. Along with 3D printers a wide variety of CNC machines and laser cutters can be controlled. Duet 2 Maestro is built into the Promega 3D printer from M3D, so Promega customers will be able to test it out the soonest.

Easy to Configure
Setup your printer and update the firmware through the web interface. No need to compile firmware.

G-Code Everywhere
All settings are done through G-code, giving maximum control flexibility. Write your own macros for homing, pause, resume and much more.

  • EXPANDABLE

Up to Two (2) Additional Drives
Support for a further two (2) stepper drivers and two (2) heaters, two (2) thermistors or combination thereof (may require additional interface electronics, not included) on expansion headers. Firmware support for mixing nozzles, multiple Z motor bed leveling and remapping axes to use high power external drivers.

Touch Screen Support
The optional PanelDue controller provides a full color graphic touch screen controller with virtual keyboard. Also talks G-code for maximum flexibility.

Advanced Calibration Support
Use an optional add-on of a smart delta effector or DC42’s contactless IR bed probe combined with advanced firmware features for more accurate printer calibration.

Accurate Temperature Control
ADC gain calibration for thermistors allows for accurate and repeatable temperature setting. PT1000s can be interfaced directly. PT100s and thermocouples are supported through digital temperature daughterboards.


SUMMARY OF PRODUCT FEATURES
