What is the function of TR1 in this circuit 3.

For this specific example, you do not need to convert any polylines to polygons so leave the checkbox unchecked. Automatic fixing of ulitboard edges The final layout with the imported board outline is show in Figure 7 Figure 7: Viewing the Gerber File Ultiboard includes a built-in Gerber Viewer that you can use to verify the production files created.

It is important to talk to your production house and identify all the ocmo and formatting information they need to support their manufacturing process.

DXF Import and Export in NI Ultiboard – National Instruments

Export options for NI Ultiboard. I don’t think multisim supports this feature. You will need a separate PCB pacakge. Introduction Exporting a file refers to taking a CAD representation of a PCB as can be seen in your Ultiboard file and producing an output in a format that can be understood by the fabrication equipment at the board manufacturer.

Back to Top 4. Select the DXF file in the Open dialog.

So I can send my gerber files to a PCB manufacturer and when the PCB comes out made even then the pin holes are connected from top to bottom. Ultiboard now cycles through all the layers, and allows you to set the aperture settings and file locations for each layer of the design.


Gerber Files A Gerber file is a standard file format that contains information necessary for the computer controlled machines used by PCB manufacturers to exactly replicate CAD-based design patterns.

Ultiboard is also used to import and export of industry-standard file formats such as Gerber files and DXF files to facilitate the design transfer to the manufacturing process and to allow layout exchange with other CAD tools for design completeness.

I hope this addresses your concerns. Conclusion Ultiboard is an optimized environment for engineers who need to rapidly prototype printed circuit boards, it allows for comprehensive design manipulation of common prototyping tasks such as component placement, trace routing, and design rule checking.

Sorry Ultiboatd am asking so many paear but I need to be sure of what I am doing if I am ordering something. Sign up using Email and Password. Select a destination folder and click on the Save button to finalize the location of the export. Aperture Mappings Click on the OK button to finalize the export.

Exporting Gerber Files from NI Ultiboard

Ultiboard files to PDF format With the layers selected and any other option set, such as units, digits, options, oversize, and so on you are ready to export the Gerber files. The Export dialog box is a simplified dialog box that you can use to establish the different parameters required by different manufacturers for the final file export.

With the Gerber properties RSX or RSD dialog box, you can select the layers to be exported, the number of digits in numerals, and the kind of measurements.

This is where you specify which layers you want to export and the units of conversion DXF is a dimensionless standard, so you need to specify what dimension unit is equal to one DXF unit. For the purpose of demonstration, the board outline has a low level of complexity; however, complicated mechanical design footprints can be exported from AutoCAD and imported into Ultiboard. When the design of a printed circuit board PCB is complete, the design needs to be sent to a PCB manufacturer to be physically fabricated.

DXF Import and Export in NI Ultiboard

For Gerber RSX files, there is no need to edit the fe settings as they are automatically set by the export process. Board Outline in AutoCAD WS In this board outline design, the outline is intentionally left open at the bottom to demonstrate how Ultiboard automatically fixes this error when importing the file. In Figure 2 below, you can see the various parameters that can be set to configure your Gerber file export.

You could improve your question by including information about what experience you have with making PCBs.
