How to export laser parameters from JobControl®

Request a demo

There are a number of reasons you may wish to export files from JobControl®, such as to save them to an external drive or use them on another laser computer. JobControl® files are essentially back ups that include the laser parameters and are saved in XML format. From these backups, the settings can be re-imported later.


Step by Step

Opening the material database

  • Open JobControl® on your computer
  • Select "Settings" → “Material Template Setup Ctrl+M"
  • The materials database will then open

Exporting by clicking the gear icon

  • Select “Material group"
  • Click the gear icon
  • You can then select to export either all materials, or a singular material.

Select the location to which you wish to save the file.


Importing files

When you need to re-import the backup, or perhaps you're setting up a new laser computer, check out the guide below that will take you step-by-step through the process.
