Finally after almost nine months of development we are proud to present Ultratronics v1.0! This 32-bit board will fit the high-end requirements for modern 3D printers. It's based on Arduino Due and several other open-source projects. Most notably this board provides support for 4 extruders, 7 stepper drivers, 4 thermo couples, ethernet, SD and several other functions.
We are still working on some documentation and the design files to be released, so expect updates the coming few weeks. Also we provide a MarlinKimbra firmware, which you can download from the software section. Note that Ethernet support has not been implemented yet and will follow in a new release.

While we are still working on the launch of Ultratronics, there is good news for the Megatronics: we have released a new version. Version 3.1 now support SD card detection. Also the I2C bus now keep working even after the board has lost power.
For more information check the datasheet on the product page.
After six month it's time to do an update on the Beagle. We had quite a success with the Beagle so far, up to the point where keeping everything in stock was quite a challenge. In the mean time we did a very big print job for a customer, requiring eight Beagles printing 500 print hours each. This gave us a much insight in the performance of the Beagle, which resulted in some small improvements in the design, but overall we are quite happy with the quality and performance. We are doing a finishing touch on the new Beagle manual, which we will be releasing soon. Also new firmware and Beagle upgrades should be available soon and feature in the next newsletter.
