For PCB milling, you ned to start with the gerber format. Then you need a software to convert the gerber file into isolation toolpath. This software requires a few inputs from you like the thickness of the milling tool etc. The next step is to save this file as an HPGL or dxf file. This file is then picked up by the milling (...)

i have not seen that .. i have seen utility to convert bmp (bitmap) to protel file .. but it could be way fory you .. just save gerber as bmp (layer by layer)
and convert .. maybe you can import protel file ;0))

Hi need help finding a couple of different pieces of software. Could anybody recommend or link to a free or demo version of -
1) A version of software that will easily convert dxf or DWG files to gerber format.
2) A version of software that will allow me to stress test an ethernet link, i.e drop packets etc.

Hi! I want to translate .geo file in IE3D or .hfss file in HFSS into gerber file for PCB manufaction. My officemate teaches me to redraw the geometry in Protel 99se, and then convert the pcb file into the corresponding gerber file. Well, I think it is very easy to make mistake when redrawing. Can anybody know the software which can directly (...)

I am trying to convert dxf file (generated by Hfss ) into gerber file via gerbtool but it is not working. Can somebody help. It asks me about the input file and report. And then what should I do. My design is just a simple patch antenna.

Most full featured gerber tools (e.g. Graphicode GC2000) can convert gerber to dxf files. igs exchange format is mostly used for 3D graphic representation, but can display simple 2D structures as well, I presume. So you need convert dxf to igs in a mechanical CAD tool, and there you are. I (...)

The gerber format is text format and is quite simple for decoding so we can very easy create an image of the design in the computer memory. Once we have this image we can save it in other formats - like MAX or PCBDOC (Altium). For sure this will require good skills in PC programming. Personally I made some time ago software which is saving the gene

I don't know of any program that will convert a .DWG file directly to gerber. You would have to use one of the many software programs that convert .DWG to .dxf first. You would then have to read the .dxf file into a CAM program such as Gerbtool or CAM350, and output the gerber file.

In allegrow, At the dxf convertion window, one option is there. PADs and ETches in Black colur or not like that. If it is enabled means disable those things, and select the option which give different colors for different map layers.

Hfss can export a dxf file. Once you have that, you need a CAM editor, or other PCB software that can import the dxf and export the gerber files.
Without knowing what sofware you have at your disposal, it's difficult to give detailed directions.
If you can get the dxf file, and you can't find software at your location (...)

You will have to create a gerber (using CAM 360 or similar softwares) for the PCB guy to take into production.
As Amihomo says, few guys may entertain dxf as well but atleast here in India, we usually give gerber formats to pcb manufacturers.
What's CAM 360? A Google found me nothing on it. I also tr

powerpads can only make excellon files for drilling, but i have found a program which can convert gerberfiles for isolation milling on a cnc machine. Works wel KCam .
But it only export dxf files, which i can not use. Other option is to use KCam direct to control your cnc machine for isolation milling.

By PDF I assume you mean PDIF. You can't directly import PDIF files into Protel or AD. You need to open the PDIF file in another format and then import into AD. The easiest is PCAD. Open the PDIF file in PCAD, then save the PCAD file in ASC format. Now you can import the PCAD ASCII file directly into AD.
If you have trouble, PM the file to

As suggested by llololl you can use Orcad if your pcb manufacturer/ Film maker dont accept dwg or .iges etc. then convert your file to .pcb.

Maybe if you have exported your model to dxf in CST and then importe to Altium, it may not work because dxf (in CST 5.0 atleast) is 2D and all layers may not have been exported precisely.
