AD18 Camtastic Export to drawing quick question
« on: September 10, 2018, 09:29:57 pm »
Can anyone with AD18 see if they still have the option in Camtastic to export gerbers to drawing (DXF)? 

I recently upgraded to AD18 from AD11 and the option appears to be missing.

Also, could someone recommend a better CAM viewer, even if not free?

Thanks

Gerbview. I use it to reexport Gerber files from AD.
My CNC milling machine software doesn't like the Gerber files generated by AD, so I use it to reexport the files.
Not free, but for a few tens of bucks, it works well.

DXF export from Camtastic in Altium V18 has been removed, for whatever reason.  Confirmed by Altium representatives on their own forum.

FAB3000 is what Altium's Camtastic would look like today if Altium kept up with the development of the tool:    https://www.numericalinnovations.com/collections/fab-3000-gerber-cam
