Can FAB 3000 Generate a Pick and Place File?

Yes. Please view the following tutorial movie:

(A) Turn on Top Paste Layer and Top Silkscreen.  Lock Top Silkscreen so it doesn't interfere with your selection.
(B)  Select all pads for a single component (start with largest pin count first).
(C)  Go to menu, Assemble / Build Component...
(D)  Select Pin #1  (FAB 3000 is good at guessing the location of Pin#1 - so you can typically use the default).
(E) Review options and press OK.  Repeat these steps for all SMT pads.
(F) Assign Reference Designators.
(G) Export Centroid File
