Become a beta hero
Author: Faisal Nimri Category: Uncategorized

We’re looking for users to put MakePrintable to the test as beta testers.
In return, they will be celebrated heroes.
MakePrintable is in its final phase of testing, and we are scanning for a human to keep us up at night and provide feedback.

Our Hero program starts on the 20th of October and ends on the 30st of December 2015.

 Heroes Program

Hero’s perks

  1. Heroes get to use MakePrintable and enjoy optimized models that are checked and ready for printing.
  2. Heroes enjoy testing MakePrintable’s Gcode reverser and reverse build 3D models that are locked.
  3. Heroes contribute data to Mixed Dimensions, which is planning to better the community by providing more 3D tools and solutions.
  4. We have a booth at Inside 3D in Santa Clara; Heroes can come and meet our co-founders, and get a hands-on experience using MakePrintable. Hero’s also get cool MakePrintable giveaways.

If a Hero is active and has over a certain number of fixes, we might ask for more feedback on a Skype session.
Did we mention that heroes get access to MakePrintable for FREE?

What do Hero’s get in return?

All Heroes will get their names written on MXD3D’s wall in our office. Also a special mention and a thank you will go out on a blog post. Think SEO and recognition
