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 FilePlug-insMiscImport 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.
