Having a fixture for topaz-x machine | 7 October, 2008

So i have a pcb that is not panelized and it is a single pcb. The problem is that the pcb is small, so it needs to be on a fixture for it to go through the topaz-x machine. The xy data that the customer provided is for the pcb only. How do i include the fixture without messing up the coordinates??

its a silly question, but i can't seem to figure it out. Any help is appreciated.

thank you steven

Hi

Perhaps you could modify the PCB Origin coordinates in the PCB Info. Change the PCB Origin X and Y coordinates to point to the PCB origin on the fixture.

Lock the pcb in the machine with the fixture. Teach origin 0 (O0,the datum origin or pcb origin). That's the only data you change.
