To highlight entire nets in gerber files: 1. Import all Gerber files and drills. Goto menu: File | Import | AutoLoad... 2. If necessary define Layer Types (ie. Top, Bottom, Top Silk, etc.). Goto menu: Setup | Layers Table... 3. Run netlist extraction. Goto menu: Tools | Nets | Netlist Extraction... Note: All Nets will be detected from the gerber files. 4. To highlight nets, goto lower-left of workspace explorer and clock tab "Nets". Select any net located in the nets control, and it will be automatically highlighted.
If you would like to use the same net names generated from your CAD file, please perform the following: 1. Generate an IPC netlist from your CAD software. 2. Import the IPC netlist into FAB 3000. Menu: Import | Netlist (IPC-D-356)... 3. Convert FAB 3000 net names to your CAD software net names. Menu: Tools | Nets | Apply External Netlist
