exporting eagle files to gerber
« on: February 22, 2016, 09:43:22 pm »
Hi I'm at a little loss
I'm trying to get some gerbers using this
https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/using-eagle-board-layout/generating-gerbers

but when I try to look at the gerbers with this tool:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/gerbv/?source=typ_redirect

it seems I'm missing some layers
I have a 6 layer pcb
but I can only see top and bottom


I tried searching a bit but with no luck

So the question is how to get my other 4 layers for the gerbers?
I always need 3 attempts to plug in a USB connector

The layers are probably not in the CAM job file.
As you can see, sparkfun has a 2 layer board.

In my time, we read the manual. The new generation seems to hate reading...

Check Help -> Generating Output -> CAM Processor

Use the attached cam job as an example. Open it in Eagle and check if the layers correspond. Remove the section for the v-cut (you'll probably don't need it).
Save it for later use. Before running it, create a subdir "gerber-excellon" in the project dir.
The difference between theory and practice is less in theory than
the difference between theory and practice in practice.
Expensive tools cannot compensate for lack of experience.

Always check the manuals and tutorials (v7) first: http://www.cadsoftusa.com/training-service/tutorials/

Eagle can design 6layer PCB? I know how to export 2layer and 4layer Gerber by Eagle, but for 6layer, I never did this before since I didn't see 6layer option. Do you have the 6layer .brd file? Send it to me and I can have a try for you.

Use this job file to generate gerbers.
