Re: orcad layout

Make gerbers from your Orcad layout file and than open those files in Gerbtool.
In Gerbtool you can export bitmap.

Have a nice day

orcad layout

If I were you, I would use "Print Screean" key which is exist in any keyboard. just load your layout and then press foresaid key. after that you can paset this image any where you want (e.g. Microsoft Paint). I did it before. it work with no problem.

Re: orcad layout

Hi, Adobe Distiler and Adobe PDF also work perfect, But I think you must have verion 6 or 7 to have a colorfull image.
Have Fun.
