How to generate the Gerber file

How to generate the Gerber file from Eagle for your project?

A Gerber file for each section of your electronic circuit design is what you need if you want to create a PCB.


Step 1: Open the CAM Processor

In Eagle, open Board view. Click the “CAM” button or choose “File -> CAM Procesor”. This will open the CAM Processor tool that is used to generate the files.

Here you can define the sections you want to create files for.


Step 2: Open a predefined job

To simplify creating Gerber files, you can use the predefined job of myProto. This is the file myProto RS-274x for two-layer circuits and the file myProto RS-274x for four-layer circuits.

We recommend that you put these two files in the directory C:\EAGLE-x.x.x\cam

To open it in the CAM Processor click “File -> Open -> Job”

Browse to your /eagle/cam/ folder, and you should see a file called. Choose it and click “Open”.

You will now see several tabs in the CAM Processor. Each of these tabs will generate a Gerber file.


Step 3: process job

Click on “Process Job” to output the Gerber files. You will find the files in your project directory folder.

Step 4: Check output files

You will get 10 RS274-x format gerber files with myProto RS-274x 2 layers:
