RE: Prusa Badges and Rewards... What you want to know!

So, I've been snooping around, trying to figure out all the ins and outs (and occasionally getting more tangled than my filament on a bad day). What's the deal with these badges? Are they like the scout badges I never managed to get as a kid? Because I'm totally ready to earn my "3D Printing Wizard" badge this time around!

Hello all. 

We have released a blog post and videon on the recently announced (kind of) and implemented badges and reward system on prusaprinters.org. You will find all the info from our blog post and our youtube video as well. So go check them out and get those meters!

RE: Prusa Badges and Rewards... What you want to know!

I just noticed that the "3× Prusament spool voucher" is gone from the available list of rewards.

Was that an intentional choice? Because while I could simply switch over to invidiual Prusament spool vouchers instead, that would force me to have each of the spools sent as an individual package, tripling shipping cost and not doing the environment any good either ...

(Obviously, I'd really like to have the "3× Prusament spool voucher" option back. Many thanks in advance!)

Will the 2x Prusament spool voucher return?

The Prusament ASA option is also gone from the available list of rewards - why?

Have a look at my models on Printables.com 😉

Sorry I was a bit careless with my screen shot.   The full post reads:

Due to low stock of nearly all Prusament materials & colors, we have temporarily disabled the vouchers for 2x and 3x Prusament spool, plus the ASA voucher from the Printables reward system. We'll bring them back, once Prusament manufacturing catches up a bit with the demand.

to learn more about Prusa Badges and Rewards! Are there different tiers? What activities earn badges? How do rewards enhance the user experience? Let's dive in and uncover the benefits of this incentivized system for Prusa enthusiasts.

I suggest grabbing the hot end of the extruder when it's set to 200C and hold it until you smell bacon cooking. That would be more beneficial than this "reward" program.

to learn more about Prusa Badges and Rewards!

Like - how to get rid of the entire system?

Are there different tiers?

Yes:  Gullibe newbie, Filament wasting idiot, Spammer of a million virtually identical worthless prints for upload points and several even lower grades.

What activities earn badges?

Printing badges.

How do rewards enhance the user experience?

They don't.  They encourage abusers to pollute the database making it even harder to find designs worth downoading and reinforcing the popular misconception that 3D printing is all about wasting plastic on trinkets. 

As a result of this incentivisation many of us have given up uploading designs.  It can take months, even years, to fully test and refine a design, it then takes days, perhaps weeks to write, user test and refine the build instructions.  Uploading takes a few minutes then in half an hour the work is buried too deep for any but the most obsessive searcher to find it.

The only use, now, for Printables is as a repository if you wish to link outsiders to your work without having to set-up the download.

Cheerio,

RE: Prusa Badges and Rewards... What you want to know!

About spammers, yesterday I was looking for some models tagged as gridfinity and noticed quite a lot of prints totally unrelated to gridfinity. After checking I noticed they belong to the same person, checking one model revealed that the model had huge amount of random tags added just to increase search results...

How this should be handled, just report the models or the user?

See my GitHub and printables.com for some 3d stuff that you may like.

By all means report both, better though would be to request deletion of everything uploaded since mid December 2021.

Cheerio,

RE: Prusa Badges and Rewards... What you want to know!

Hi everyone, recently I payd attention at the badges available for download, and since I recently got a multicolor 3D printer, I thought of printing my own. But some time ago, I think I clicked one and then must have lost or thrown it away,  not knowing they could only be downloaded once. Is there a way to re-download the one I lost? Also, it seems that Professional designer and Professional Maker are the same thing as I think one overwrote the other. So I actually I just have one of my three main badges. 

One of my badges that I can't download

They can be downloaded as often as you like, but not every level has a badge...
For designer there is only a level 5 badge. You can access the level 5 model by clicking on "Scarica badge 3D".

Thanks for your reply, now I see: there aren't badges from a specific level onwards, but just for some of them, in no particular order!
