Importing parameters is easy - simply follow the steps below to import your exported parameters into JobControl® - where they will be available immediately.


Step by Step

Opening the material database

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

Open the menu via the gear icon

  • Click the gear symbol and then select “Import from File” 
  • Select the exported XML file containing the laser parameters.
  • If there are multiple materials with the same name, you may need to create a copy or overwrite the existing file.

Our suggestion:

We suggest that you create a new material, rather than overwrite an exisiting material to avoid loss of data. You can always go back and edit the parameters at a later stage.


How to export the data from JobControl®

When you need to re-export the new data to create a new back up file for example, simply follow the steps in the tutorial below:
