Geda PCB Uploading

Post by mightymouse3062 » Sat Jan 12, 2013 8:55 am

Good morning,
I am using Geda PCB to do some circuit board design (version 20110918) and I would like to know if I am exporting/uploading the files correctly.

I have exported and uploaded a design (DRC Bot said it passed) with these files and the layers they are set to:
breakoutboard.bottom.gbr - Bottom Copper
breakoutboard.fab.gbr
breakoutboard.plated-drill.cnc - Drill
breakoutboard.top.gbr - Top Copper
breakoutboard.topmask.gbr - Top Solder Mask
breakoutboard.toppaste.gbr
breakoutboard.topsilk.gbr - Top Silk

I don't know what the toppaste.gbr and fab.gbr should be set to (this is a 2 layer board). Also, it will render the images once I upload them but after that, it does not show any rendered image of the board. I want to make sure this is correct before I submit it, how do I do that?

Thank you,
Mike

It has been a while since I submitted something but I use this script to do the work:
