How does one create the gerber filetypes
from EagleCAD that ladyada has provided?
I've searched high and low on the boards and in readme's for this information, and have been entirely unsuccessful.
The problem is:
I am unable to generate the same gerber file types
that are available for download and that have been created by the likes of bushing for his v1.0b_fixed boardset. When I run CAM Processor, and go File -> Open -> Job -> gerb274x.cam, and click "Process Job," EagleCAD creates these file types:
the file types available for download and the files created by bushing are these types:
How do I create these file types, and not the ones in the first list?
I've used GC-Prevue to look at both sets of gerbers, and the second list (the official ones) look much better aligned and more precise than those in the first list (the ones I created). But more important than this is simply being able to create the gerber file types that Limor and bushing seem to have so easily generated.
Bushing created his v1.0b_fixed revision, but he created gerbers for each board by itself. (EDIT
: I now realize he must have done this because he couldn't rename the main board's misnumbered parts to their correct numbers because they already existed on another of the boards. When combining the three boards into one .BRD file, EagleCAD must have renamed the duplicate part numbers, beginning with the highest existing number. The way around this is to add a period or apostrophe to the end of the main board's correct part numbers).
What I am attempting to do (without using a gerber merge program) is correct the silkscreen issues but create a gerber file set for the 3-board single-panel, rather than three separate panels (which, if I'm not mistaken, would be far more difficult - read: expensive - to have done at a boardhouse).
If someone helps me with this, I will gladly post the new, silkscreen-corrected panel, for those who want the single panel instead of bushing's three separates. I have already mimicked bushing's fixes and have a few improvements of my own.
Thanks in advance!
