Gerber Export!!!

#1 Post by SZA » 09 May 2014, 08:11


Is there an option to export all the various layers required by the manufacturer into one completer zip file?

The process we follow is a bit too click click click...
1. Export gerber
2. Export all
3. name it , save it and keep saving it till the last layer.
4. Export NC drill file.
5. Go to the saved location, zip all the exported files.
6. finally mail the zipped file to the manufacturer.

so the question, does DIPTRACE have a Export all option that Exports all the files in a zipped format to a specific folder? :?:

You can make you a bit simple if you select the gerber files you want to export first and then when you go Export all it will export only the files you need to send to the manufacturer, they will have the same name but different extensions

See the picture below

This are the standard files that most of the manufacturing houses need to produce the PCB's
(seeedstudio, elecrow, i-tead, dirtypcbs, oshpark, etc.)

in elecrow they ask for:
NC Drill: pcbname.TXT
Mechanical layer : pcbname.GML

but, I don't know what they mean by mechanical layer. And my NC drill is in .DRL

For the nc/drill have you tried just re-naming the file? The content of the file is text.
Pcbway accept the file as it is.
I just do gerber export and select export all, then the nc drill.

I'm not sure what they are asking for with mechanical layer.

Just pic a destination and Assy layers and export two layers to single file. Do this for all layer.
