I am currently working on a project. After everything done, I needed to make a Gerber File. I tried everything on the internet but I got nothing different than a black screen. I do not know which part I'm doing wrong.

This is my project

Gerber File Step 1

Gerber File Step 2

Gerber File Step 3

Gerber File Step 4

Gerber File Final Step

Here is the result

I only used Top Layer of PCB. I need your help. Thanks!

  • \$\begingroup\$ Let's start simple, the CAMTastic tool is really buggy, especially when it comes to display. Have you tried dragging the canvas (right-click and drag) to see if it shows up? Sometimes it takes a little bit of movement in order for the copper to show up. \$\endgroup\$ – DerStrom8 May 10 '18 at 13:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ Also, how are you entering the Gerber Setup? Are you doing File --> Fabrication Outputs --> Gerber Files? \$\endgroup\$ – DerStrom8 May 10 '18 at 13:42
  • \$\begingroup\$ @DerStrom8 I made Gerber file the same way you said. In .cam file, there is nothing to see or drag. Just black screen. \$\endgroup\$ – Griffo May 10 '18 at 13:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ @DerStrom8 I created a random project that contains a LED and a resistor. Did same way to make a Gerber file and it happened. So maybe there is something wrong with my project? \$\endgroup\$ – Griffo May 10 '18 at 15:17

I couldn't find where the problem is but found the solution. A friend of mine told me that create a new project and move the schematic and PCB files to this folder. This was interestingly worked.

    \$\begingroup\$ Interesting, must have been a bug in your old project file. Moving it to a new project worked around this. Very good, glad you got it sorted! \$\endgroup\$ – DerStrom8 May 13 '18 at 12:27
