I make what I call a "PCB preview" by exporting high-res bitmaps (2450 DPI = 100 pixels per mm) to separate layers in photoshop, and filling the layers with near-real-life colors. It would be super cool if FAB could make a layered PDF, that shows a "real life" image. Can FAB 3000 create a "real life" PCB Preview image?
Yes, FAB 3000 can create a "real life" PCB Preview image. Use the command: File / PCB Preview...
Please view the following tutorial:
Note: A border layer must exist, and all objects on that layer must be continuous and closed (no individual line segments). Use Join Wizard to close and join boundaries. Then you can export the image.
