PADS to Proe conversion (PCB )


New member
has anyone had experience with this? I know you can export and import a .emn and a .emp file. we are having problems with not getting any component holes from pads. I can get board outlines but not mounting holes, or component holes.

thanks Terry
It's a PADS attribute thing. My Sr. PC designer tells me that the attribute for the hole has to specify that it is a hole. We have several mtg hole sizes set up in PADS and they always come in. See your PCB designers or librarian about this.
