I am brand new to pcb software (last time I make a pcb was with Letraset and acid!)
Is it possible to create a gerber file from an image? So far I have managed to do the following:
- Convert downloaded gifs of track layers to bmp files.
- Convert bmp files to gerber files using ‘Image to Gerber Converter’
- When I Import these converted gerber files into KiCad GerbView I get: 'warning. This file has no D code definition.Perhaps it is on old RS224d file. Therefore the size of items in undefined.
Consequently the layers are the wrong size.
Am I going about this the wrong way? There has to be a simple way to create a 2-layer pcb from gifs.
Thanks in advance.
