How can I align my gerbers to my drill files? Because they aren't aligned when I import them.

For some reason, many PCB CAD software output their manufacturing files with different coordinates.  Fortunately FAB 3000 can easily accurately align the layers.

Once you have imported your manufacturing data into FAB 3000, please perform the following to align any layer:

  1. Go to menu:  Edit / Align Layers
  2. Select a reference object on the "Base Layer" (i.e Good Layer).
  3. Now Select the similar reference object on the Layer to be Aligned. The layer is instantly Aligned.  
  4. Repeat Step #3 for any other layer that needs to be aligned.

Here's a tutorial movie showing the steps:
