Generating pick and place file in GC-Powerplace| 29 September, 2012
I have just installed the demo version of GC-Powerplace. Could anyone here walk me through the process to generate pick and place file from gerbers? I don't have solderpaste layer. All I have got is signal layers (top/bottom), soldermask, silkscreen, Drill.NC, and outline layer.
When ACE is used, do I have to change the rotation of my SMT parts? How to check if current orientation/rotation of all components are correct? How to assign parts' designators automatically from silkscreen? Do I have to modify parameters for each individual part manually?
