This setting may affect the alignment of the drill file viewed by the Gerber Viewer. If the Gerber viewer previews the Gerber and drilling files and finds that the drilling files are inaccurate, you can reset the numerical format of the drilling files in the Gerber viewing tool to 3:3, or other formats.

Options:

  • One-click export: According to the default settings, all layers and primitives are exported, excluding the drilling table and independent drilling information files.
  • Custom configuration: Modify the configuration according to your own needs. Support drilling information and drilling table; support adding different configurations on the left list; support selecting exported layers; layer mirroring; support selecting exported primitives. When exporting, select a configuration for Gerber export. Up to 20 configurations can be created, double-click to modify the configuration name.
