Yes, use 6x00.  For some reason, cadence names it for the old gerber plotter 
controller model number :)

perl -v allegro2all.pl

Thanks George!
I fwd this to the vendor which has Valor. If they output to "274c", then I will 
try converting the aperture file and import.


1.      I am using Allegro v.15.7 and do not get the 274c option while 
importing artwork. Just 4x00, 6x00,RS274X,Barco DPF and Automatic. (see image 
below)

2.      Do I select 6x00???
3.      Also, what is the command to run the perl translator script. I am using 
Cygwin shell.

Thanks you for your reply!!



Regards,
Mark

You can use Valor to translate RS-274x to RS-274c that Allegro can import 
easily.

When you open the Export window, click the arrow in the Format box, and select 
"Gerber", not "Gerber274x".

When you click apply, two files will be produced, he 274c gerber file(s) and 
dcodes.apr, the aperture table.  If the gerber file suffix will be like .1p, 
.2n, etc.  For a positive gerber only .1p will be produced.  for a negative 
layer, RS-274c can't handle composites, so it will produce multiple files (.1p, 
.2n, etc) that represent the composites.

The aperture file is in Valor format, I have attached a perl script that will 
translate it.

Hello Dave...Uri...or anyone else out there in the group,

We need to import Gerbers from a 3rd party RS-274X file into Allegro.
I tried the Sourcelink with no success.
Is there a Skill file available to convert these?

I have attached two files:
1. layer01p.gbr (Original "Dazix" gerber file sent to fab)
2. sigt.gbx (Valor output of original gerber file) see #1
3. rs274x_fix.doc (Sourcelink instructions)

Please reply if this is possible.
I need to make thse changes in Allegro v.15.7

Regards,
Mark

Hi Dharma,

Generally speaking it's not possible.
Howver, I have written Skill code to translate Gerbers from several tools with 
some success.
I generally need to customise the code each time I run it. Not fun!

Cheers, Dave

Hi Everyone,
Is there a way to get 274x gerbers output from some other CAD/CAM program to 
read into allegro? The general error I seem to be getting is "N codes not 
supported" I have tried everything I can think of and none of it is working. 
Some of you must have run into this before.....?
Thanks in advance,
Dharma
