Gerber is used in PCB fabrication data. PCBs are designed on a specialized electronic design automation (EDA) or a computer-aided design (CAD) system. The CAD systems output PCB fabrication data to allow manufacturing. This data typically contains a Gerber file for each image layer (copper layers, solder mask, legend or silk...).

Hi to all


I use DipTrace and I exported the Gerber-Files.

First time, AllPCB imported the files and said, that the drillfiles was expected.
This was true, because i missed to select them in the export.


After This I made a Export WITH the drillfiles. But AllPCB could not import them.

Then I opened a drill-file and I saw: there are datas in it !


So, my question is: Does anybody know, how I can export the correct files for AllPCB in DipTrace?


Thanks a lot for all help

Hi to all


My description "Export with DipTrace for AllPCB"  with the pictures had one little bug:


Do not export "Gerber X2"    do export "Gerber"    -  then it works.

And additional: N/C drill like described.


Best regards

Markus

Hi Toni

Do you use DipTrace?


Now I exported it in this way: Gerber X2  and N/C Drill



Gerber:

- In the files section I defined, what is the default-Export for "export-all"
- then I clicked: export-all



N/C Drill

- Here I clicked to "auto" to define the tools
- then "export all"




The result is the following:

- All Gerber-Files

- The Drill File "Through.drl"



But after this, the allpcb-team said: "Does not work - drill-file missed"


I don't know, what I have to do  :-(

Best regards

Markus

To be specific,when exporting Gerber files , you need to export Gerber files (copper layers, soldmask layers, silkscreen layer, outline layer) and. Drill files (Type- NC data, format- excellon ) separately
