    • Add more parts to your build by selecting a Part from the dropdown in Add Part and then clicking Add Build Page

    • Click on the X next to a part's name to remove it from the build
  5. Once all the parts in your build have been configured you can print your parts.

 

If you have a Mark One that is registered with your account, connected to the internet and is ready to print you can select it from the Select Printer dropdown. Once a printer has been selected you can click the Print button which will generate the print and send it to your Mark One.

 

If your Mark One is not connected to the internet click the Download button. Eiger will generate and download a .mfp file for you to use offline. Simply copy this file onto a USB drive and insert it into the back of your Mark One. Navigate to the Settings Menu and select Print From USB. Then select your print from the list of available prints.

Note: When creating a file name for your .mfp file, please limit the characters in the name to ASCII Characters. File names with non-standard ASCII characters will not be able to be recognized.

 

Saving Builds

Prints that contain more than one part (or copy of a part) are called Builds. Once more than one part has been added to a print a button will appear that says Save as Build. If you think you will print this set of parts again save it as a build for easy access.
