Altium Designer - Set PCB Thickness ?
« on: July 28, 2015, 04:31:39 am »
I have a PCB that I've exported as a step file, but the board thickness seems to be set as a default 0.3mm or so.

Is there a way to set the PCB thickness (in general or for the step export) ?

This is done in the Layer Stack Manager. Menu: [Design] -> [Layer Stack Manager]
Altium calculates the total thickness of the board from the thickness of each layer that you specify there.

How can u produce a board without defining the layer stack in the first place?

nothing is wrong with using default layer stack which is standard top/bottom two-layer (unless you have special requirements)
