Import a DXF file

Import a DXF file

Hello,

I know that Ultiboard is able to import DXF files.

But my customer needs to import a contour for his PCB. So the shape should not be edgy.

He is using Pro Engineer and maybe could also use a different file format, but he prefers DXF.

Thanks a lot for you quick replies in advacne ;-)

Greetings from Austria

Re: Import a DXF file

Hi Bernhard,

To import a board contour into Ultiboard, the DXF import could be used as well. Simply map the imported DXF shape to the board outline layer.

Thank you,

Mahmoud

Re: Import a DXF file

Hi Mahmoud,

thanks a lot for your quick reply. The problem is that I do not know who to do it and also the customer does not.

Could you please send me a few instructions or screenshots how to do it?

This would be really great.

Thanks

Bernhard
