Create NC Drill Chart (Custom)

The Create NC Drill Chart (Custom) command is used to generate a NC drill chart onto a PCB design sheet. The generated chart can be freely edited, allowing you to add dimension lines and customize the drill table. It can also be output to the PCB manufacturing documentation such as Gerber files. The chart can only be generated into the Other layer.

Example) Create NC Drill Chart (Custom)


Create NC Drill Chart (Custom)
The instructions that follow explain how to generate a NC drill chart onto your PCB design sheet.
(1) Select the [Project]
>> [NC Drill]
>> [Create NC Drill Chart (Custom)] command.
(2) Check the box for each hole type you want to generate the NC drill chart for.
* The NC drill chart will be placed on the layer shown in the Layer column. If the layer does not exists, it will be automatically created in the Other layer.
(3) Click the "OK" button.
(4) A NC drill chart is generated on the PCB design sheet.
  If the placement layer does not exist, it will be automatically generated in the Other layer.
* If any objects exist in the placement layer, you need to remove them before generating the NC drill chart.
* The chart consists of line/text objects, which allows you to freely customize it.
