Your schematics are up to date and you’ve checked your connections to make sure everything is working.You’re ready to hand your PCB design off to a manufacturer and you pull up your Gerber File. While Gerber Files are the standard file used by the PCB industry, they do have drawbacks, especially as PCB designs become increasingly complex.
Without the ability to layer stack or access materials information, with no net list, test points, drill files or bill of materials for assembly, you have to do a lot of extra work to do. Work that is tedious, time consuming and can lead to errors and formatting problems. But Altium has the solution.
