Altium Gerber Export

Indeed, the problem shows up also in CAM350 (version 10.5). It looks strange, outermost fill is properly done but inner missing areas have no proper polygon border.

I did some attempts to fill them using CAM350 but did not easily manage that (not a very good idea to use CAM software to edit the data anyway!).

After some fiddling, managed to fill the voids.

Ugh, I've confirmed that this is still a bug in the very latest AD10. Fills aren't filled when they are completely enclosed by other tracks.

It turns out that the Olimex document has an unnecessary step, and there's a bug in Camtastic when you export the gerbers in step 8 (File, Export, Gerber). The gerbers are actually generated and saved after you do (File, Fabrication Outputs, Gerber Files) - look in the Projects pane under Generated/CAMtastic! Documents.

So just generate the Gerber Files and NC Drill Files, find the newly created files (right click and Explore). If you look at these files in Camtastic, they won't have the same problem.

Answers were found at http://forum.live.altium.com/#posts/188130 , where the OP also used this Olimex document! I'm very sorry about the bum steer :(

Another unhappy gerber export user :( All good up to this point, where do you find the newly created files - I can view the layers (and gerber names) in camtastic but cant seem to find where they are saved to individual files? Can only find the cam file.

Hi vl400,

After doing File, Fabrication Outputs, Gerber Files, have a look in the Projects panel:
