About Projects

Eiger users can manage their parts through Projects. Projects allow related parts to be stored together and to be easily accessible.

The Project pane will appear at the left side of your screen. Projects that you own will appear in a section above all of the other projects in the organization. Once a project is created, a tile will appear in your library for the project, alongside your parts.

All users in an organization will be able to view or add their own parts to any existing projects. If you want to add a part owned by a different user to one of your projects, you will have to clone the part first. Only the owner of a part can remove the part from a project.

 

 

Create Projects

To create a project:

  1. Navigate to your Eiger Library.
  2. Select the "New Project" button.



  3. Create a name for your project and press "Save".

Add Parts to a Project

All new projects will be empty until parts are placed into them.

To add a new part to an existing project:

  1. Navigate to your Eiger Library.
  2. Open the project you want to add the part to.
  3. Select "Import STL" while in your project.

Manually add an existing part to a project:

  1. Navigate to your Eiger Library.
  2. Open the project that you want to add parts to
  3. Select the "Add Part to Project" button.
  4. Select the existing part(s) from your library and press the "Done" button.

Parts can also be dragged into your project from the library page. Just click on a part and drag it until the tile for the part overlaps the tile for the project in your library.

Parts added to a project will be moved from the library to the project. If you wish to keep a copy of the part in your library as well, clone the part in your library before moving it to the project.
