Import ModuleImport Module

The Import Module is used to read Gerber and drill files, as well as pick & place data and documentation, into the system and "package" them into a PCB product. Each input file is automatically mapped to it's board layer, based on an AI-based filename analysis or by using pre-defined or customizable filename filters. A WYSIWYG viewer shows your board just as it will be interpreted by the manufacturer. Once the PCB product has been saved it will appear in the Product Browser, ready for panelization and/or stencil creation.

Stackups

When defining your board, you may choose from a large selection of pre-defined stackups, or define your own buildup. Either way, a  high quality technical drawing of the stackup is automatically generated in PDF format.

Symbols

Symbols

A unique feature of the import module is the ability to add symbols to the component legend or solder mask layers. Available symbols include: Lead-free, CE-mark, WEEE, Recycle, ESD, RoHS, bar code, fiducial and the fabricator's UL-mark.

Product Browser

Product browser

The Product Browser allows you to organize and browse all of your PCB and Stencil products. Products may be sorted into customizable project folders for easy searching.

The Product Viewer allows you to view and inspect the product's Gerber, drill and pick & place data in detail. Features include pan, zoom, measure and complete layer selection. Documentation files, including automatically generated stackup drawings and panel drawings, may be viewed or saved locally. You may also add additional documentation to the product, if necessary.

The print utility may be used to generate high quality technical drawings in PDF format. Layout drawings for each layer, stackup drawings and drill template drawings may be generated.
