I’m trying to work with a new (to me) pcb fab house and they cannot open my gerbers.
They sent me a screenshot showing only the .drl file being recognized, and then a folder view of another customer’s project with all files with protel filename extensions. I tried re-exporting with Protel Filename Extensions to match, as well as 4,5mm coordinate format but they still weren’t able to open these.
When I asked what version of CAM350 they were using, they just said “chinese version”… ay…
Does anybody have any sure-fire gerber export settings that work with stubborn fab houses?
FWIW, this fab came highly recommended by a few friends but none of them use KiCad.
Kicad has many plugins that can easily export common Gerber files, which are supported by most manufacturers in China. And China’s PCB manufacturers are fiercely competitive, the production of PCB is indeed cheap, in recent years have launched free proofing activities, everyone has twice a month free proofing opportunities, including four layers of PCB
