I have a friend that is doing some artwork for me, and he is having a few problems.
Both of us haven't done a PCB design since last century. A couple of old work horses trying to design a new board.
Have outlined the problem as explained buy him below:
any help appreciated, thanks.
I am going to produce some PCBs and having never done gerber prints before, I created what I think are the correct files but when I view them with GERBER MAGIC there appears to be an extension to the size of my PCB of about 5mm all round..
I am using Protel Design Explorer 99se and in protel the PCB size is correct.
Is this normal when using gerber magic to view a PCB?.
