Questions about the BatchPCB service

Moderator: robacarp

I'm using eagle 4.15 and generating 2.4 drill files. Viewmate shows 2.4 to be correct. Batch PCB seems to pass the file if I say it's 2.3 or 2.4. Are you guys automatically figuring it out? I'd think you must be because the size calcs are correct and I recall seeing you say you scan the drill file for max boundary.

Should I be selecting 2.4 or just not worry about it?

we have no way to check drill file size because because there are no config lines in drill files, so we have to take what you tell us as true.

So if you are telling us what u are using, it will make no difference what format you use

The drill file filter is really the last thing to iron out. For now, we are going to try to import your drill file according to what you tell us. If it doesn't look right, then we'll get it right, and tell *you* what *your* format is. That way in the future, we hope that most of the incoming designs will have the format known and we can just slide right through the import phase of panelization.
