Is there any company to accept the Kicad file for PCB fabrication and assembly.
I remember seeing an advertisement of some fab house from China but cannot remember the name now. Almost any fab will accept Gerber files generated by Kicad though.
Thanks for your reply.Yes, as you mentioned for PCB fabrication they will accept Kicad but for PCB assembly and soldering they mostly accept Altium, Eagle, Target format.
I found this blog may have answered your question:
It seems to me that KiCad can be accepted, according to this blog:

Kicad has no issues with PCB assembly. You just need to give the assembly house the .pos files and an assembly drawing. The gerbers also output the paste files.
We got PCB fabrication & assembly done from http://www. technotronix.us since 2005, they are good in terms of turn around and over all build quality of products, and we did start with them from prototype. Overall we have found them responsive.
Try Macrofab, they take kicad files and the gerbers and you tell them the orientation of the components in the browser.
Are you looking for a pcb assembly manufacturer where you have all the parts to build it already or a design you have you have created and manufactured?
We used to use Seeed Studio for small production runs where we had all the parts and circuit boards and just handed to them to build. They do almost anything you ask.
CRAP... 1 old thread brought back from the DEAD... sorry still a little new to the forum.
