The DeeGreen 3D printer coming from be3D, a Y Soft company, has it all–and now it’s going global. A comprehensive mid-level 3D printer meant for the desktop, the DeeGreen 3D printer has brains, beauty, and brawn. Not only that, it’s extremely user-friendly, which for most of us busy people is a quality that needs to be at the top of the list.
Meant for a wide range of users, be3D had everyone from students and hobbyists to fashion designers and architects in mind when they made this printer. While it’s aesthetically pleasing, and capable of producing extremely high-quality 3D prints, be3D also makes it very easy for the user to work on creating–eliminating time spent on fiddling with and fixing hardware. One important feature is that it offers automatic pad calibration, offering efficiency and making workflow easier.
We’ve followed be3D as they initially unveiled this 3D printer at the German trade show, CeBIT Hannover 2014, have reviewed it previously with high accolades, as well as following recent last year’s funding by Y Soft, and their impressive business growth strategies.
Offering an extremely solid structure featuring a magnetic panel and door closures, auto-stop, auto-bed calibration and a two click-to-print interface, the company wants users to get what they expect out of 3D printing today: to be able to pull it out of the box and go straight to work creating–not functioning as a hardware specialist. be3D seems to have completely accomplished their mission in creating a turn-key, quality product that allows users to churn out 3D prints without failure–and without spending hours learning how to use it first.
“With DeeGreen, we feel we have created an affordable, high quality, 3D print device that meets the needs for rapid prototyping and creating objects for educational purposes,” said David Miklas, CEO, be3D. “The worldwide availability of DeeGreen is a major step for us in contributing to 3D printing innovation.”
The DeeGreen runs on DeeControl software, created by be3D. The proprietary control software adds layering and additional data to the 3D file, which can first be created in numerous common modeling programs.
It uses PLA filament and boasts a simple loader for materials. The DeeGreen has also been heavily tested with great success to ensure safe operation, and be3D reports that it has received CE, FCC and EAC certifications among others. Retailing at $1,890 (USD), the DeeGreen is backed by worldwide support from Y Soft, and also comes with:
- One-year warranty
- DeeControl software
- Power and USB cables
- Filament holder
- Memory card
- Cleaning tools
PLA filaments are available in a variety of colors, and the DeeGreen can be purchased through a large network of global distributors and resellers. Find out more here.

As we reported previously, Y Soft invested a majority stake in be3D just last year.
