I am new to this. Have just designed a board in a program called Lay01. imported the gerber files into Viewmate, then opened Smart DFM and have recieved the following error, The drill data contains only NCtool imformation (no traces, pads, etc.)
What does this mean, and how can I fix it. Regards Ernie

Pads in drill layers need to be mapped to NC tool shapes (shape letter "N"). If the drill data originated from an Excellon or other drill format, then this mapping would have happened automatically. If your drill layer originated as a Gerber file, you will need to map the shapes of the pads in the drill layer manually to "N" type, using the "Setup/D Codes" dialog (F5).
