  • Open the JobControl® software
  • 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.

Save the file to your preferred location, such as a back up drive or to your computers hard drive.
