What line in the .CLB xml file Locks the setting from being edited?
Trying to make my own library starting with one I downloaded for the format, but I want to unlock everything so I can edit the settings rather than making copies.

Nevermind. Found it.

Change Locked=“1” to Locked=“0” with a find and replace all :slight_smile:
Completely unlocked now.

Now I will just kinda use this layout so I don’t have to start from scratch and mod it with my lasers needed values as I try each material.
I will preload it with some other laser values I found on the net using my same tube (not in a library though, so have to do it manually).


Be careful - the library you’re using as reference is made for a diode system with about 4 to 5w of power. If you use it for a CO2 system, and use an entry you haven’t set properly for your machine, you’ll torch the heck out of whatever you’re cutting.

Yes. I plan to go through and change all the settings or possibly just copy each one as I dial them in for my machine. I may just go through and lower everything to some safe low setting and then adjust them up as I get to use new materials.
It would be nice if I could find a template closer to my machine or one that was prefab and just had zeros in it for power and speed or something, but this is the only one I could find. I basically just wanted the layout and the naming and stuff to work from so I did not have to come up with all the naming and organization stuff myself.
If you know where I can find something laid out nice, but for a 100-130W laser that would be great!

Edit: I just did a find and replace all of:
maxPower Value=“100” with maxPower Value="11’
numPasses Value=“X” with numPasses Value=“1” (X was done for every number I could find in use)
runBlower Value=“0” all changed to runBlower Value=“1”. This way everything will have air assist on until I decide if I need it or not. Won’t accidentally smoke up a lens or anything.

This should make it safe. Then I also know if it is at 11 that I never used it yet. I will scan through and see if any other settings need to be done like this to suit my machine…then I have a nice template with safe values to work from and tweak as I use new materials.
