I want to get my PCB assembled from ELECROW, and they’re asking for a coordinate file. How do I generate that? https://www.elecrow.com/5pcs-2-layer-pcb-2691.html
Is this the pos file?
This can be created by opening the dialog: pcb_new->File->Fabrication output->Footprint position File
The dialog looks like this under kicad 4.0.2
For footprint selection:
Only footprints with the attribute Normal+Insert will be added to this file. (In the official library all SMD parts have this attribute.) I think the option “force footprints” with smd pads will set this attribute for all smd parts on your board. But i’m not sure about that.
under your link, a bit down one can find this template:
So you need to make sure that the output you get from KiCAD conforms to this.
