You can also try ADS dxf file format.
The basic issue here is that HFSS and the associated files are 3D in nature. A gerber is used to fabricate a printed circuit and is basically 2D. HFSS supports a variety of file formats. The one useful here is a *.dxf which is supported by HFSS . This file is convertible to a gerber using software like (...)
The appended dxf is useless because it has all data in a single layer. PCB layout data must have separate layers for each copper layer (apparently 1 in your design) soldermask(s) silkscreen ("marking") board outline drills Drill data must be probably manually converted because a file with x/y coordinates and tool number is expected. (
The issue is probably that you have an antenna file that is in a 3D format. You (probably) need to convert to 2D like .dxf that is more easily converted to gerber files. I am assuming that you are trying to make some sort of printed circuit antenna. There are other solutions possible and you might find free software somewhere. Even with (...)
I don't believe there's any way to go from a gerber file back to a proprietary format, whether it's Eagle, PADS, or anything else. You can, however, translate gerbers to dxf, and then maybe import the dxf into your program.
Just export ur file to an dxf / DWG format and Make a print of it in 1:1 Scale..!! Some fabricators ask for a gerber file (even in this format u can export ur file)..!!
What did you install or change 15 days ago then? A 3D dxf program by chance? In Autocad can you simply use file\file open and change the type to dxf then select and open the file? Change your file associations to remove this association, then setup a new one for autocad.
I have been chasing my tail a bit trying to convert a gerber file, *.grb to a *.dxf. There are plenty of free viewers and converters that go the other way. I am looking for a freeware solution that does not preclude commercial use. An old thread here was helpful. Skywalker started the discussion:
dxf/DWG export is mostly used for mechanical construction,that's why objects are exported as empty blocks. For PCB manufacturing gerber export is used and the exported objects will be filled in gerber other hand, ODB++ export is a industry standard and many PCB design (...)
The standard format for sending PCB layout for manufacturing is gerber RS274X for the layout files and Excellon for the drill files, but those PCB manufacturers who support Rogers substrates usually accept dxf as well. A few notes on dxf: - Unlike gerber, dxf can have (...)
Hi K.Mehta, Before importing first you check all the plugins required to import are installed or not(DXP/plugins and updates). To import gerber just open one Cam file from file menu then try to import. dxf/DWG-you can import in both sch and pcb file depending on your requirement.
Usually you can pass either *.dxf or *.gds files to a vendor Both formats are not common in PCB manufacturing. The file format used in PCB manufacturing is gerber RS274X or RS274D.
Hi, I used the following steps to export the CST structure to Altium. 1. CST export dxf file 2. use CAD open dxf and save as dxf 2000 version (only 2000&2004 version work) 3. use Altium import dxf and generate the gerber files The elements have ring shape. But (...)
I think Orcad can import directly from dxf, PLT or gerbers. If it can't import gerbers you can use programs like CAM350 to open the gerbers and export them as PLT or dxf
Hi guys, When we export ADS layout to gerber etc, there are many broken lines... Some ways to improve it are: - Components -> Flatten. - Boolean OR - Merge Union However, there are still a few broken trace left ... any suggestion?
hi i converted dxf file to gerber can you please tell me where am i going wrong with the conversion ???i have showed it to a fabrcater and they said its nt right ?? the units are mm and they opened the dxf file in ADS and said the dxf file has dimesnions in mils The (...)
hi, 1. Save your file in dxf format 2. Export to pcb layout software 3. design to your requirements and save as gerber file
I am building capacitance sensing electrodes to detect insects/small animals. The electrode shapes are mostly driven by animal/environment restraints and I need a way to estimate parasitic/residual capacitance; the ICs I use only allow so much nulling. I have gerber/dxf of the layers and can generate 3D models. Any (...)
Hello, is there a free software which convert dxf to gerber and vice versa...... thank you in advance, N
I need to extrapolate a DRILL file from a dxf file I use Linkcad4 and I can make gerber files, but I don't understand how to make a Drill file thanks in advance
