Cutting parameters ​such as **Cutting speed**, **Process current**, **Arc voltage reference**,​ **Ignition Height**, **Pierce height**, **Pierce time**, **Cutting height**, **Kerf compensation** and others can be loaded from the Cutcharts ​depending ​on the plasma ​power source, ​materiel ​type, material thickness ​and gases/​nozzles used
  
-Cutchart database stored in myCNC software as SQLite database file. Database ​can be filled manually or imported automatically from XML or CSV file format.+Cutchart database ​is stored in the myCNC software as an SQLite database file. The database ​can be filled manually or imported automatically from an XML or CSV file format.
  
-Comma Separated Values ​(CSV) is widely used text formatXLS/ODT files can be easily saved as **CSV** from Libre Office Calc or Microsoft Excel.+====Importing the cutchart database==== 
 +In order to import the cutchart database: 
 +  * Go to the myCNC Downloads page, scroll down to **Plasma Cutting Cutcharts** and download the necessary cutchart file (note whether you are downloading an SQLite or a CSV file) 
 +  * Move the downloaded file to the folder from which the SQLite files are loaded  
 +     * Ubuntu Mate: /opt/myCNC  
 +{{:​mycnc:​cutcharts-003-folder.png}} 
 +      * Tinkerboard computers: ​/home/​USERNAME/​myCNC/​ (usually /​home/​operator/​myCNC/​) 
 +{{:​mycnc:​cutcharts-007-tinkerboard.png}} 
 +  ​Go to **Settings > Config > Technology > Cutcharts*
 +{{:​mycnc:​cutcharts--001-main-settings.png}} 
 +  * In the **Cutcharts Database Filename** field, enter the file name that you would like to load into myCNC (for example, MAXPRO200.sqlite). 
 +{{:​mycnc:​cutcharts-005-maxpro200.png}} 
 +  * Save and reload the program. The file should now be loaded into the myCNC system.
  
-For example, select **Save as** in Libre Office menu, select **Text CVS** and choose in CSV options - {{mycnc:​mycnc-cutchart-export-csv-0.png}} +====CSV files====
-  * ";"​ as field delimeter +
-  * ""​ (empty) as text delimeter+
  
-{{mycnc:​mycnc-cutchart-export-csv.png}}+Comma Separated Values (CSV) is a widely used text format. XLS/ODT files can be easily saved as **CSV** files directly from Libre Office Calc or Microsoft Excel.
  
 +For example, select **Save as** in Libre Office menu, select **Text CVS** and choose the following in the CSV options:
 +{{mycnc:​mycnc-cutchart-export-csv-0.png}}
 +  * ";"​ as field delimiter
 +  * ""​ (empty) as text delimiter
 +
 +{{mycnc:​mycnc-cutchart-export-csv.png}}
  
-Parameters List that can be stored in Cutchart is shown in table below+These delimiters allow the file to distinguish between different entries that are typed in. The file should now be ready to use.
