Hi,

Is there a written procedure on how to extract Netlist from loaded Gerber and NC Drill data using Viewmate Pro ?

Thanks.

Look for information relating to netlist in the CAM manual CAMGuide.pdf.
You can find it at: ftp://ftp.pentalogix.com/Documents/
Note that ViewMate Pro can only do raster netlist, which is an approximate method (depends on the resolution you select).
CAMMaster and CAMMaster Designer have the more advanced "Contour Netlist" which computes the netlist by doing computation based on polygons.
There are more netlist related documents at the above FTP site. Look in the Appnotes\Netlist folder.
And, if you have more questions, contact us at support@pentalogix.com or call our support phone number.
