hello again
the manufactore sais that there is no otline in my gerber, in my layout i have one in Board Geomtry/Outline, but i dont see it in the gerber, and the manufacotrer also,
can any one help me with this?
thank you!

try to verify the layer name in your layout and check it when generating your gerber data.

Hi ronf6co

You can add the board outline in the Art file generation table in manually.

1. turn off the all layers visibility.
2. Turn on the board geomenty outline.
3. Go to art work generation table.
4. select the one of the ,art file folder(ex: top )
5. right click and select add option.
6, Know the board outline its added in the .art file list you generate the photoplot.
