I just recently purchased the ACE3000 V7 translator and I am trying to export GERBER and drill files from DWG format.

Thanks for your fast response.
I have viewed your resulting Gerber and Drill files, they are outputted fine when viewing inside various commercial Gerber Viewers and CAM software. I can't speak on behalf of how GerbV parses the drill files, but you outputted the Gerber/Drill files using: Leading Digits: 4 Trailing Digits: 5 Units: English (Inch)
A value of 4 for Leading Digits a non-typical setting for English (inch) units. It's my guess that GerbV does not like those digits and displays incorrectly. I would recommend outputting your gerbers from ACE with the following settings: Leading Digits: 2 Trailing Digits: 5 Units: English (Inch)
Please view the following movie tutorial which shows me convert your DWG to Gerber/Drill (using 2 for leading digits) and then viewing with GerbV:
Note: This was a quick tutorial without sound, and I may not have used all the correct layer settings when importing DWG. I just wanted to provide you a reference point to visually confirm the drill files you exported from ACE can be correctly imported into GerbV.
