Markforged recently introduced another software update to Eiger providing some valuable features for new and current users. They’ve updated the Eiger sign-up workflow, making it easier for you to try out the software before getting a printer. They’ve also added some tools in Eiger to provide weight and material cost information about sliced parts. Try out Eiger to discover how Markforged products can improve your design workflow.
Eiger, the software that slices parts for all Markforged printers, was designed as a production quality slicer and file management solution for customers. Eiger is designed to walk you through printing with their unique CFF (Continuous Fiber Fabrication) process, giving you full control over how your part is reinforced with composite fibers. As an organization tool, it also allows for part sharing, version control, and print monitoring. Now anyone can experience Markforged’s Eiger software and learn what it takes to create strong 3D printed parts in various composite materials. Sign up to test out the software that controls our award-winning machines.
Anyone can create an Eiger account, so those without printers can test out the software capabilities. You can import STL files and experiment with any of the print settings, fiber routing options, or configurations that you would use with the printer. You also have access to all of the file management and organization infrastructure Eiger provides – share parts with colleagues within your organization, and access projects and version history of each part. Parts can be sliced and fiber routing can be configured just like in a full account, but cannot be sent to printers or exported. While Eiger without a printer has a 30 part limit and does not permit cloud based slicing, registering a printer will open up the software to its full form. The printer can be added directly to the original organization for a seamless transition to a full featured account with unlimited parts and cloud-based slicing access.
Upon signing up you’ll receive guides on fiber reinforcement to help you take your beginning steps in the software. You can also check out some of the newest features that have been added to Eiger, including, part weight and cost estimates!
