I am having an unusual problem with gerber export to mill a pcb with pcb2gcode.
I looked and I didn’t find previous posts on the subject.
I designed a simple pcb with some push buttons and debouncing capacitors (the footprinf is taken form the Kicad library: Capacitor_SMD:C_0805_2012Metric_Pad1.18x1.45mm_HandSolder)
When I run pcb2gcode I get an error: “error code while processing input files (error code - 1073740940)”
The error goes away if I delete the capacitor footprint.
I created a test pcb (attached to the post, together with gerber files) with just a capacitor as a test and the problem is definitely associated with that footprint, and only goes away if I change the shape of the pads form rounded rectangle to just rectangle
A second problem I found is that if I try to process the gerber files for both copper layer and edge cuts
I get an empty g code file for the traces. If I process them one at the time I get good G code files for both the copper traces and the edge cut.
I am working with up to date software (Kicad 5.1.10 and pcb2gcodec2.4.1)
Is this something which others have experienced before?
Is there a known fix or workaround for this, without having to debug the problem in larger PCBs with many components?
Should this be reported to the Kicad developers?
Thanks in advance
