From time to time, you may wish to export files from JobControl® to save them to an external drive, as a backup or to setup a new computer. JobControl® files are XML files that store backups of the laser parameters. Using the XML backups of the laser parameters, you can reimport the settings later.
- Open the JobControl® software
- Select "Settings" → “Material Template Setup Ctrl+M"
- The materials database will then open
- Select “Material group"
- Click the gear icon
- You can then select to export either all materials, or a singular material.
Save the file to your preferred location, such as a back up drive or to your computers hard drive.
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.
