I recently sent over gerber files to the board house and they are asking me for the GENCAD .CAD file for placing components. I know Orcad Layout generated this file, but I'm not sure what it is I can give the board house from Orcad PCB Editor v16.5 so that they can continue building the boards.
PCB Editor Generates many reports, which one will the board house need for placing the components? How do I get the report?
They have been able to succesfully build/drill the PCBs with the files I've sent them, but they are missing the .CAD for placing the components, shouldn't they be able to get the info they need from the gerber files?
This file is not any specific format but your assy should have the ability to make sense out of it.
