But this time I'm getting an error: "Board outline not found in .GKO file"
I'm using Proteus 8.11. I know how this should be done, it used to work for me. I draw a 2D graphic box on the MECH1 layer around the design to define the board edge. (I also have some mouse bites and holes on the MECH1 layer). I then export the Gerbers like this:
Proteus puts out .GBR files, and I rename them to the files DirtyPCB expects.
Here's my Proteus output:
TEST3 - CADCAM Top Copper.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Bottom Copper.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Top Silk Screen.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Top Solder Resist.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Bottom Solder Resist.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Top SMT Paste.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Bottom SMT Paste.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Mechanical 1.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Top Assembly.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM Drill.DRL
TEST3 - CADCAM Drill.GBR
TEST3 - CADCAM READ-ME.TXT
Here are the files renamed for DirtyPCB (with unneeded or empty files removed):
TEST3 - CADCAM Top Copper.gtl
TEST3 - CADCAM Bottom Copper.gbl
TEST3 - CADCAM Top Silk Screen.gto
TEST3 - CADCAM Top Solder Resist.gts
TEST3 - CADCAM Bottom Solder Resist.gbs
TEST3 - CADCAM Mechanical 1.gko
TEST3 - CADCAM Drill.txt
It all worked in the past for me with other boards...but not now with this one. Here's the result:
The board image looks correct, but it has the error message. However, it displays correctly on OSHPARK, JLCPCB, and multiple Gerber viewer apps, all without any errors.
I don't want to place an order with the error message appearing, so I ended up placing the order elsewhere. But can anyone explain why DirtyPCBs gives this error but other fab houses don't? I'd like to stay with DirtyPCBs...
(I can post my Mechanical 1.gko file if someone thinks it would help...)
