Posted - 21 Jun 2016 : 16:43:01 The output .PLX file should just read into Pulsonix with the default set of Layer numbers provided by PCBLibraries and using our example technologies. Once within Pulsonix, layer data can of course be moved/changed. The receiving layers can be changed if wished to match your technology within their software as their Help instructs. If this is not working then we would like to know about this at the Support address already stated.
Posted - 21 Jun 2016 : 16:12:26 I see. Is it at least possible to get layer number to default layer name mapping ("LayerNumRef" statement in PLX)?
In particular I'm interested in Courtyard Outline (i.e. Placement Outline) mapping.
Posted - 21 Jun 2016 : 14:56:27 The format of the file has been defined whilst working with them so if there is an identified problem, please report it to email@example.com. There is a process which is defined on their site
Posted - 21 Jun 2016 : 14:05:15 That exactly why I ask for it: I use PCB Libraries Library Expert Pro with Pulsonix export option (v2016.06) and it seems that PLX file they generate have some useless/confusing strings. It would be great to have PLX format description available so I could provide feedback to PCB Libraries on Pulsonix export.
Posted - 21 Jun 2016 : 12:26:27 The PLX format is provided for footprint creation software to provide outputs for the import into Pulsonix footprint libraries and as such is not published. The footprint creation software normally defines how to create a footprint and export it into Pulsonix.
