Re: Guide pins on smd solder mask.. #pcbgcode

John Johnson
 

If I follow your question: pcb-gcode doesn't do any tool offset for tool diameter (other than when creating track isolation/etch files). If there is a line to be cut in the milling layer, the center of the tool will follow that line. One workaround is to create lines on the milling layer that are offset when you lay them down. The easiest way is to set the line width to the tool diameter, and use that as a guide.
It might be possible to create custom components based on the ones you have, with any cutouts offset to compensate for tool diameter.

John

After a lot of checking it would seem that in the case of my circular pad, the final hole ends up half a tool diameter larger than the original pad size.  Viewing the cutouts for other devices on the board, they would appear to be similarly oversized as well.

For example I placed an smd pad 0.05" diameter on the circuit board and the coordinates on the stencil for the sides of the matching square hole Gcode turn out to be 0.04413 in length.  With a tool diameter of 0.01182" (3mm ) I would have expected this to be 0.050" -  0.01182" (i.e.0.03818" ).  Curiously enough this is almost exactly half a tool diameter smaller than the actual value. Is this intended, an error in calculation or just co-incidence ?

Re: PCB-Gcode in Fusion 360 #pcbgcode

Hi,
that comports well with what I see happening in EAGLE, namely a pour isolated by a small but increasing amount 
with successive iterations. 

The process does not (visually) appear the same in Fusion. I would guess that PCB-gcode calls for a pour and as a result Fusion
generates a panel with the appropriate data, isolation distance, thermals etc. My guess is the intention is that the panel should be populated
with your choices if different from the defaults and the panel OKed before the pour is calculated. The panels flash up that briefly that its 
impossible to view or otherwise update it before the next successive panel appears.

I did try creating a ground pour in the original PCB artwork but that did not in itself allow pcb-gcode to work with regard to generating
compliant .etch files.

I also tried creating a .etch file with just a single pass hoping that the panel would exist long enough that I might view it, to no avail.

I have a subscription for Fusion, largely because of the CAD/CAM features but as it includes an unlimited (by comparison to the free
EAGLE offering) PCB design solution I am keen to get it to work. I am not a fan of subscription based software but when I compare the overall
value of the components offered as a single solution it does make sense and I overcame my aversion to a subscription.

Craig.

That's correct. The pour works like a ground plane pour, isolating itself from existing tracks by some increasing amount. The pour is then processed as polygonal line segments by pcb-gcode to generate the g-code movements for mechanical etching.
If the pour isn't happening, the whole process fails.

Re: PCB-Gcode in Fusion 360 #pcbgcode

Hi, 
I have been experimenting trying to find a solution to the empty .etch files, to no avail as yet.

I have tried making a rectangular pour, both top and bottom sides, without any change, namely strangely
empty .etc files but complete and intact .drill and .mill files.

I presume that the ulp actually runs on the local PC. Only when the project is saved does it get saved to the cloud.
Thus the generated files (.drill, .mill,.top.etch and.bot.etch) get saved to a temporary file on the local hard drive
until or unless the contents of the file is uploaded to the cloud.
The path to the files is reasonably torturous:
C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\Neutron\ElectronFileOutput\2bc73b8b-e893-4770-9b65-71cfe347664d

The fact that the .drill and .mill files are present and correct after running pcb-gcode suggests that the ulp can navigate
to the required location and create/update the files there. Is it feasible that the potentially much larger .etch files
cannot be created/updated at the location above?

Rather than dig down to the location I would like to save the generated Gcode files in the Documents/Fusion360 file or a subfolder
of it. How would I go about modifying the file path in the setup page?

I am not 100% sure how to change the origin in Eagle, but:
1. The origin is on the left when your looking at the board view and it is a transparent view from the top of the board.
2. When you flip the board over and look at it from the bottom, the origin is on the right.

I do not use BCNC so don't know how they look at things. But when you use pcb-gcode to generate your gcodes, the origin will be on the right for the bottom of the board and on the left for the top.

Re: sorry error illegal phase 0 #gcode

Ken McNabb
 

Art is correct. I learned this a couple of years ago when my IT gave me a new PC with an ' in the user name. pcbgcode does not like any of the non alphabetical characters in the path name. Took me a lot of trial and error to work out what the problem was. Then having to rebuild my PC with a new user name, because I really wanted pcbgcode to work.


Re: sorry error illegal phase 0 #gcode

Art Eckstein
 

OK, I am at a loss like you so will start grabbing at straws.

Looking at the path to your board rang a little tinkle bell in my head so here goes.

Your path is:
Emacs!

Something in the back of my brain says eagle/pcb-gcode might not not like a few things I notice.
1. The entire path is rather long some 60 odd characters.  Might be a problem
2.  The path contains spaces which again might be a problem.
3. There is the ' in the path name that again might be a problem.

As I say, I am strictly guessing at possible problems and therefore would suggest copying the file to a much shorter path name without any spaces or ' in it.

For example use "C:\pcbs\shield.pcb" and try to run the ulp against that and see what happens. 

Also, I don't know as I don't run V 7.2 if there might be a comparability problem there. Maybe somebody else could jump in and say whether or not they run that version of Eagle successfuly?

Good luck and hope it gets resolved.
