Level up. Get rewards.
It’s one of the universal truths of humanity - everyone likes free stuff! The Atlas is our "learn n' earn" rewards program, active only in certain participating makerspaces.
The Atlas serves as an extensive rewards program designed to award you with exciting perks and prizes based on how active you are in the community and how many badges you earn. We get more makers making, makers get more prizes for their creativity - sounds like a win-win to us!
It's a simple idea: makers earn one level for each badge they earn. The more badges you have, the higher your level. Think of these levels as a point-buy system. You can “buy” or redeem rewards across different specializations by spending points as you level up. You can choose to stockpile points to cash in on major rewards, or spread points far and wide across specializations for a little taste of everything. Learn more machines, earn more badges, gain more priveleges, score more prizes. It's that simple! But be warned, intrepid makers -- once you've locked in a reward, it's locked in for life. You'll have to earn more badges to unlock additional rewards!
Our rewards program is targeted based on what makers prefer to do. Some makers prefer to 3D print. Other makers prefer to work in the wood shop. No matter your preferred realm of making, we’ve got something just for you.
More information coming very soon, stay tuned!
While being able to 3D print is certainly its own reward, the Innovation Wyrkshop wants to put the cherry on the printing sundae for motivated makers. Once the rewards are unlocked by earning one 3D printing badge, makers can cash in their points for one of two types of rewards. For skill-oriented makers, points can be exchanged for resume titles - these range from two points for the Familiarity rank to six points for the Mastery rank. These titles come with text that can be placed into a resume, CV, or application, and are excellent perks for makers interested in pursuing 3D printing careers.
For makers who want to do more printing instead, we offer reduced prices and expanded material access. Four points gets a maker 25% off all 3D printing materials, access to exotic materials such as TPU or copper composites, or a free 10-hour 3D print. Six points can unlock better discounts - up to 75% off of all 3D printing materials! With rewards like these, who wouldn’t want to print?
