Navigating Eiger


Topics:


 Eiger is divided into four main sections, each consisting of a number of pages:

  • Workspace: Access, organize, and edit parts and builds.
  • Activity: Monitor ongoing print, wash, and sinter jobs.
  • Account Settings: Review and edit Eiger settings.
  • Organization Settings: Add/remove users and configure user access; note that this section is only available to the organization owner.

The navigation bar remains visible at the top of each page, and most pages display a sidebar for quick navigation; the contents of the sidebar will change to reflect the section to which the current page belongs.
