[PCB_FORUM] Re: RS-274X

Hey man,

 

Thanks for the idea. Yeah, it sort of worked. I set the Bounding Box to
2100 (mils).

The gerber for this negative layer now included my targets and film
description box, but they are negative.

 

With RS-274D, the negative layers still had the lines and text of the
targets/film description box (of course outside of the board outline) as
positive.

 

Thanks again, this may be better than not getting them at all if I do
indeed decide to go to 274X.

 

Regards,

Gary

Gary,

 

Try to set Shape Bounding Box in Artwork Control Form and make sure this
number (measure from board's outline) large enough to cover any lines &
text that you want to show.

Hey guys,

 

Allegro PCB 15.5.1, Expert license, Windows XP Pro

 

Ok, RS-274X question.

 

I like negative inner planes, and include targets (lines) and a film
description box (lines and text) below the board.

 

I notice that when I gerber out negative plane film in RS-274X format, I
don't get the targets (lines) nor the film box (lines and text).

I see the same results whether I load the gerbers into an Allegro
database or CAM350.

 

Is there any way to get the lines and text on a negative film with
RS-274X?

 

Thanks for any help!

 

Gary
