Introducing Modular Design - Big News for Upverter

We’ve got some really exciting news to share with you!

Altium is merging Geppetto Modular and Upverter Circuit Designer together to give our design community the ultimate in convenience and ease of use. The future of upverter is exciting, with further integrations on the horizon.

Now, you can do everything through the new Upverter Modular platform—design PCBs, share designs for review and manufacturing custom boards. Plus, of course still access the Upverter Circuit design tool you know and love.

With the new, improved Upverter platform, you’ll have easy access to:

  1. Simple drag-and-drop modular designer
  2. Automatic Board Support Package
  3. Free and easy CAD downloads
  4. Altium Viewer
  5. Pretesting and order on demand

…And that’s just the beginning!

As an existing Upverter user, you will still be able to access your original account and all of your saved design files. To access your archived account and the Upverter Circuit Design tool dashboard, simply click the Upverter Circuit link from the bottom left footer or access the Upverter Dashboard at as usual to start a circuit design.

We’re also working on a brand-new, user-friendly interface with enhanced software to make your projects flow even more smoothly. We’ll give you a heads up before the new UI is rolled out, too–just so there’s no surprises.

To ensure that we continue to make Upverter the ultimate tool for your designs, we welcome your feedback–please let us know how we can improve the platform as we implement these new features.

We look forward to what we can create together!

Hey @froy - Absolutely nothing - the classic Upverter Circuit Environment is not going anywhere and has more exciting development on the horizon.

The Modular Design Environment is engineered to provide common building blocks for embeded systems, robotics development and more, allowing complex PCB layouts to come together in minutes.

Optimized for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Google Coral, Nvidia Jetson Nano, Toradex & Pixhawk carrier board development, the modular design environment simplifies both prototyping & manufacturing PCB’s.

Both design environments are great ways to design PCB’s in the browser and we will continue to build a more comprehensive integration between the tools. Unique to the modular environment is our automated device tree generation as well as our board support packages.

Many Thanks,

That is interesting. The classic Upverter has been abandoned. It has been unusable for almost two months. No response from anyone.

Why should anyone use this new “modular” thing knowing that Altuim could just pull it, and wipe their designs, without warning?
