Applied Parameters: CommandMode=CAM


This command is used to export simple netlist information from the current document , in ASCII format.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Reports » Netlist command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the Export Netlist dialog will appear. Use this dialog to specify the net points to be included in the export (All, or Ends Only), and whether to export the netlist for the Top and/or Bottom side of the board. Once the options are defined as required, click OK.

The Write Netlist Report dialog will appear. Use this dialog to define where the exported file is to be stored. By default, the data file that is generated will take the name Netlist.rpt. The file can be renamed by clicking within the name field. The associated file extension can also be changed to another if required, by again clicking directly within the name field or, alternatively, right-clicking on the entry and choosing File Extensions from the context menu. The new extension required can be typed into the subsequent Enter Value dialog that appears.

With name, extension, and storage location defined as required, click OK to generate the file.


  1. For the netlist to export successfully, Top and/or Bottom layer types must be defined in the Layers Table dialog (Tables » Layers), as well as Drill Top, or Drill Bottom.
  2. If saving a file with the same name and in the same location as an existing file, the existing file will be overwritten without warning.
