How do I import the basic materials included with version 7.3.1 and later?
How do I import materials into the materials library?
- Download and edit BasicMaterialDB.txt. This file can be modified in Excel but must be saved as a .TXT file
- Start GibbsCAM 7.3.1 or later
- Go to File→Plug-ins→Misc→Import Material
- Select the file called BasicMaterialDB.txt
- Click Open
No other dialog will appear. The materials should have been imported into your existing material file. You can confirm this by going to File→Materials.
