Parent page: CAMtastic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to extract the netlist from the Gerber information in the current document.


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


After launching the command, the netlist information will be extracted, and a list of nets will appear on the Nets tab of the CAMtastic panel.


  1. Each net is listed in terms of its total length. Clicking on any net entry in the panel will cause the net to be selected and zoomed in the main design workspace.
  2. The nets extracted are given arbitrary names. To assign meaningful net names, as defined in the PCB design, ensure that the relative IPC-D-356 formatted netlist is loaded, and use the Rename Nets command.
