Eiger is an all-in-one software solution that drives the 3D printing of strong parts across the expanding roster of Markforged printers.

Users can upload any CAD file and discover what makes Markforged unique – fibre reinforcement using various material combinations and geometries for strength and specific engineered properties across composites and metals. For the first time, non-customers can anticipate material usage and weight, material costs, and print times. Parts can be designed virtually across the Markforged portfolio of materials – Onyx with carbon fibre (chopped carbon reinforced nylon), high strength fibreglass or Kevlar reinforcement. The ability to print with metals will be available soon.
