How to generate Gerber file

Altium Designer








These guidelines are used layers ≤ 4 layers.
These guidelines only work when your draw the patterns in correct layers.
Some component packages are not standard. We may connect to you if necessary.
If your PCB software is not in the list above, please make sure your gerber file met the following requirement.
Gerber files should be inside a .rar archive with standard file extensions:
      Extension                                 Layer
  • pcbname.GTL                Top Copper 
  • pcbname.GTS                Top Soldermask
  • pcbname.GTO               Top Silkscreen
  • pcbname.GBL                Bottom copper
  • pcbname.GBS                Bottom Soldermask:
  • pcbname.GBO               Bottom Silkscreen:
  • pcbname.TXT                Drills
  • pcbname.GML/GKO      Board Outline
  • pcbname.GL2                Inner Layer2( for ≥4 layer)
  • pcbname.GL3                Inner Layer3( for ≥4 layer)

Notes:1. Gerber file must be the RS-274x format.  
            2. Drill file(pcbname.TXT) should be Excellon format.

            3. Gerber file and Drill file(pcb name.TXT) must be put in the same file. 
            4. Board outline is must.
            5. No non-ASCII character in file name.
