Print Jobs


Eiger maintains a record of all print, wash, and sinter jobs within your organization. The Print Jobs page can be accessed from the navigation bar at the top of the page.

From the Print Jobs page, you can reprint, reconfigure, and rate the quality of jobs that have previously been printed across any printer associated with your organization.

Note that prints that are started offline via USB and have not been specifically imported (see more information below) will not appear on this page.

The top right corner of the page contains:

  • Import Print Job button: Click to import a print job that was run offline to the list on this page. For more information, see Importing a Print Job.
