# Error while generation gerber files

I've created a layout and I want to generate gerber files for further production. I'm using Cadence OrCAD software. But when I try to Create Artwork, I'm getting an error.

I've checked the dbdoctor file and there's an error that applies to the logo in the silkscreen

ERROR: in ARC SEGMENT center = (-113.118 2.774)
class = PACKAGE GEOMETRY
subclass = SILKSCREEN_TOP
Part of Symbol Def LOGO_18X10MM_SILKSCREEN.
ERROR(SPMHUT-144): Illegal arc specification.

0 warnings, 1 errors detected, 0 errors could be fixed.


I tried to delete some curved segments but it didn't solve the problem. How can I approach that problem?

• Are you sure that you deleted the exact illegal arc at (-113.118 2.774)? Remember to put global visibility on so nothing is hidden. – Bonnevie Dec 21 '20 at 7:43
• did you do what the message tells you to do? – jsotola Dec 21 '20 at 7:43
• Hi @Bonnevie. That point is far away from the PCB outline. There's no element in that coordination. When I delete the logo in the silkscreen, the problem disappears – Marco Svizzeri Dec 21 '20 at 8:05
• Can you manually redraw the logo? There must be something wrong with it (in the eyes of cadence). – mkeith Dec 21 '20 at 8:27
• It would be nice to get to the bottom of it, but maybe you can just get around it by manually re-drawing the logo. – mkeith Dec 21 '20 at 8:31
