  • Click the “Upload to Markforged Eiger” button in the "SOLID" tab located in the "MARKFORGED" panel of the DESIGN Workspace.

    • SOLID

  • Once you enter your Access Key and Secret Key, you can select the “Save credentials” checkbox so that Fusion remembers your login information, which will make it easier for you to login to your account in the future. You can also clear the saved credentials if you wish Fusion to delete your login information altogether.

    • If you select a mesh body, or a component that only contains a mesh body, you can select UPLOAD MODEL.
