I downloaded a open source hardware design made with EAGLE and try to make my own board.
After generating Gerber file according to the tutorial from http://www.piclist.com/images/www/hobby_elec/e_eagle44.htm , I found something interesting.
The gerber file is different from EAGLE source file in
- Extra space on the right side of gerber file.
plc layer has unwante component values, stripes, measurement marks & etc.
Does anyone know the root cause and method to remove the differences? Why we can find these extra objects in EAGLE? In some invisible layers? I attached all of the images and source files in this post. Please help me out of this
