I had a student who tried to use Ultiboard for a project. The project required a custom footprint for an IC. When he sent the files out to a board fabricator, they replied that they couldn't handle the Gerber file.

On examination of the Gerber file, I saw that Ultiboard used HUGE multiline macros for the custom footprint. I've never seen such long macros - and apparently the board fab house and its software supplier hadn't, either.

So you need to check with your board fab house to see if they can handle the files. (GerbView could, by the way, so there was no advance warning of problems).

Ultiboard is not slow

The generated output from Ultibaord is also OK.

But you need to learn how to set up the post process outputs and to define your via and pad sizes correctly to suit the fab plant process.

The one thing that never gave me any trouble in ultiboard was the Gerber output

:F
