Backer Introductions & Updates
Posting scheduled meeting times, sending out design surveys, typed meeting notes, and inviting discussion around large format 3D printing.
An inclusive, open forum monthly call to facilitate discussion among super-user customers, enthusiasts, and our production team. These calls were used to share project updates and evaluate our priorities based on their needs.
Videos deconstructing CAD sub-assemblies, feed from recorded On-Air hangouts, and other project goodies from the team.
Once Backers receive their Open Gigabot, we encourage them to join the community forum to share their hacks and feedback. By using Zendesk's support forum, we are able to streamline support ticketing and track issues.
