How to generate plated drill files during DXF to Gerber conversion?

I know I have not finished reading and viewing everything but I hope you can answer a question for me. I am working on a PCB and I need to know how to show the drill hole with plating. Will your program do this or must I do this in Autocad. I had done this years ago using another cad system and there was a program that was used with it that would as questions as to hole size, plating thickness, etc. then would generate the Gerber file. Does your program do this or must I create it in cad first.

ACE will automatically generate plated drill files for any layer you select.  Here's a few support posts which may be helpful...

If you have any further problems, please feel free to send me your DXF and I'll be happy to create a tutorial showing how to output Drill.
