== Features ==
* Most printers supported: All common 3D printer geometries are supported, with easily modified configuration templates for popular designs. Along with 3D printers a wide variety of CNC machines and laser cutters can be controlled.
* Firmware support for mixing nozzles
-* Touch Screen support for the [[PanelDue]] controller provides a full colour graphic touch screen controller with virtual keyboard. Also talks G-code for maximum flexibility. (compatibility with 12864 LCD is expected in the future)

+* It is also compatible with the low cost 12864 LCD .
* Advanced Calibration Support: Use an optional add-on of DC42’s highly repeatable [[IR Probe|contactless IR probe]] combined with advanced firmware features for more accurate printer calibration. Many other probe types are also supported.
* Power monitoring to allow for state save on power fail.

== Hardware limitations ==
-* The Duex4 expansion board that was made to go with the Duet 0.6 and 0.8.5 and the Duex2/5 boards for the other Duet 2 boards are not compatible with the Duet 2 Maestro.
-* The maximum recommended power input voltage is 28V.
+* '''Duex compatibility''' The Duex4 expansion board designed for the Duet 0.6 and 0.8.5 and the Duex2/5 boards designed for the Duet 2 Wifi and Duet 2 Ethernet are not compatible with the Duet 2 Maestro.
+* The maximum recommended power input voltage is 28V.
== Open Source ==
Importantly the Duet 2 Maestro is Open Hardware running Open Software:
-* All hardware design files will be available on Github when the board starts to ship.
+* All hardware design files are [https://github.com/T3P3/Duet/tree/master/Duet2/Duet2Maestro_v1.0|available on Github].
* Both the Duet Web Control web interface and RepRapFirmware are Open Source Software [http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.en.html] with source files available and actively maintained, see [[Contributing to firmware development|Contributing to firmware development]] for more information.
-* The DuetWifi and RepRapFirmware are built with Open tools: designed in [http://kicad-pcb.org/] and [https://eclipse.org/]: using open tools means the barrier to getting involved is as low as possible.
+* The Duet hardware and RepRapFirmware are built with Open tools: designed in [http://kicad-pcb.org/] and [https://eclipse.org/]: using open tools lowers the barrier to getting involved with adding to and improving the hardware and firmware.
