The leading enterprise workflow solutions provider YSoft has announced that its AM solution, YSoft be3D eDee, is now available for educators in North America.
The safe and secure eDee printer, 3D/2D SafeQ print management software, DeeControl layering software, 3D filaments, and now, free access to its teacher tested YSoft be3D Academy. The eDee printer has an enclosed chassis, which shields students from moving parts and high temperatures needed to layer the plastic material that forms the AM object. It also helps control unauthorized access to the printing space through doors that can be unlocked only by authentication.
The company considers that there is nothing worse than coming back to class and finding out some upperclassman canceled and pulled the print job because he deemed his more important. For this reason, the eDee also sends alerts, with photos about the progress, and sends an email letting the student know when it’s done.
With the built-in security system, the eDee printer doesn’t have to be behind locked doors and can be shared in an open area like a library or maker space giving access to more students.

The printer uses PLA (polylactic acid) filament, an odorless and non-toxic, bio-degradable biopolymer, safer for students.
The print management solution can also manage a 2D print fleet, offering schools the ability to reduce 2D and 3D print costs, improve productivity, and increase document security across the board.
Additive Manufacturing in education is a growing market with more and more educational institutions adopting fleets of 3D printers to help STEAM classes illustrate difficult concepts, enhance hands-on interactive learning, and drive class engagement.
To help support those efforts, Y Soft worked with educators to develop YSoft be3D Academy, an online library of 3D lesson plans, video tutorials and ready to use model files.
YSoft be3D Academy has a range of lesson plans about additive manufacturing and model recommendations for each of the STEAM subjects. Featuring comprehensive lesson plans, guides, videos, models, and presentations, it provides everything needed to conduct a STEAM subject lesson using additive manufacturing. The highest point is the fact that YSoft be3D Academy is free to browse and use. Furthermore, if you are an eDee customer you will have additional access to premium 3D lessons which aren’t available to those that aren’t eDee customers.
In partnership with Konica Minolta, YSoft showcased the 3D printer for education on last Saturday, February 8, at the STEAM Unity Expo event at Vista del Lago High School in Southern California.
