How to panelize PCBs with CAM350
The CAM350 is a software for electronic engineers to check the designs. And also, it is widely used to panelize PCBs for SMT producing to save costs of making PCBs. Elecrow supplies the PCB Fabricate service to help our users cost down the PCB costs.
So, here is a step by step tutorial for you to learn how to panelize PCBs with the CAM350, to make your designs more effective and cheaper.
Open gerber file with CAM 350
step 1, open gerber files with CAM350.
- 2)Choose autoImport Directory
- 3)Do not select the drill layer.
- 4) Press the Finish button.
- 5) Import the drill layer
step 2, save as PCBname.cam file
Double click the GBO, then press the SelectAll Button, then press the Move To Layer button.
Do the same things for the other layers. When you moved all the same layers to one layer. Press
you have panelized the two PCB as one Gerber. Now you have to export the Gerber data.
Export the Gerber Data
Then press File->New, open the gerber file you just exported. Don't forget to check the gerber file is right you needed or not. please check the following PCB Layers
Gerber file requirement:(The following layers are needed)
|Solder Stop Mask top:||pcbname.GTS|
|Solder Stop Mask Bottom:||pcbname.GBS|
|Mechanical layer :||pcbname.GML|
