While running the idf_in command in batch on a small rectangular outline with two tooling corners lower left (origin) and upper right for some reason the lower left hole will not load. If I use Allegro and import it within the tool I receive an extents are too small warning. If I make the work area a bit larger and the x and y of the lower left hand corner a bit larger the hole loads just fine. Haven't tracked down what feature if the hole is causing the batch program to fail. Does anyone know if there is an environment variable or some type of setting that controls the extents of the working area when importing and idf in batch? The IDF file has no setting for extents and mechanical says there software does not control this. What we ended up doing is using a smaller hole and moved it 50 mils away from the board edge. I see this as a bandaide fix not really the solution to what happened. Any help would be great as I seeing this happening in the future.
My guess is that the integer and decimal values do not match. You can look at the IDF file in notepad or something and check this. I have seen this before when the decimal point does not match, or the Units MM, Inch, etc.
