Altium scary export: ODB++ and GerberX2 are different :(

<< < (2/2)

Gribo:
My older version imports ODB++, and I didn't pay for it.  I just downloaded the latest and greatest to verify, and it can still import ODB++, regardless of their website.

ANTALIFE:
Just to make sure the export is at fault, do you get the same error in DFM Now?

JohnG:
It's a good idea to check a different viewer. My company also generates ODB++ files, since one of our PCB fabs likes them, and because we import them into COMSOL. Have not had a problem yet, though most of us are on Altium 19 or 20, because upgrading Altium is like rolling dice to see what's "improved".

Exactly:   ODB export worked on Altium20, and nows fails on Altium21.

JohnG:
Thanks for posting. That is a serious bug and I will pass this info along.

Man, KiCAD is sooo close...  But we have a database library, so it's a non-starter for us.
