Set Origin

What is the best way to I import a gerber layer to particular location instead of 0,0?
Or what is the best way to move a gerber layer to a particular location without having to use the mouse?

Thanks for your questions.  By default FAB 3000 will use the coordinates in the Gerber (usually 0,0 origin).
You can use the command "Set Origin" (located in menu:  Setup / Set Origin) and pick the new place for 0,0.  Then import your Gerbers -- and repeat those two steps.

Note:  If possible could you clarify what you are ultimately wishing to solve - so I may provide you the best solution possible.  For example do you have multiple Gerber files that you wish to load in side-by-side for panelization?  If yes, FAB 3000 has some automated tools to perform that task for you.

Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
