This utility provides a single dialog to export the manufacturing files for every layer of every PCB style design in the project, rather than exporting them one at a time for each layer of each layout. It has settings for how the drill and Gerber files should be exported for the current project. When the script is run, the following dialog will appear.
The dialog has the following groups of controls:
Gerbers: Gerber files do not have a concept of layers, so this script handles exporting one Gerber file per layer. You must have a Gerber export mapping table defined in your LPF. Please see the AWRDE documentation for setting up these tables. Your first selection is which Gerber export mapping table to use. Then in the pull down menu, you can select All Layers or User Selected. All Layers will export one Gerber file for every layer in the export map regardless if the Write Layer option is selected. The User Selected option will only export data on the layers have the Write Layer option selected. Note : The AWRDE has a concept of positive, negative and normal layers that are configured with + and - symbols on the end of these layers. This script detects this situation and exports those layers as a group to the base layer name (the layer name without the + or - symbol).
User Inputs: Select which layout you want exported. Hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple layouts. Note the exported files have the file name of the schematic and then the layer name at the end. Finally, you can type in (or copy and paste from Windows Explorer) the path where the files should be written. The field will be originally filled in with the path for the current project.
