If I already have xy centroid data, how do I import xy centroid data and BOM to export centroid data with part numbers or is that not possible.

Yes you can import xy centroid + bom and export centroid with part numbers. 

Note:  If you have an IPC Netlist file, you can just import that and FAB 3000 will automatically extract X,Y centroid plus part numbers.   http://www.numericalinnovations.com/blogs/news/how-to-generate-a-centroid-file-aka-pick-and-place-for-any-pcb-in-less-than-2-minutes


1. Import xy centroid.  Here's several tutorials showing how to import xy centroid:

2. Import BOM.  This tutorial should show all required steps to complete the process.

3. Export Centroid file (menu: File / Export / Centroid...), and make sure to check the option to include "Part Number"


If you get stuck, feel free to send us your sample file and we'll be happy to create a tutorial movie.


Thanks again.
