CAM tools versions that support ODB++ version 7 from VX.1

Since we switched over to the VX.1 release we have an issue with some PCB Manufactures that have difficulties interpreting the ODB++ version 7 data.

Odd shaped padstacks do not appear under the right angle on the fabricated board.

Although the ODB++ data is fully inline with the ODB++ version 7 specification the data is different compared to that of the EE7.9.3 release.

The EE7.9.3 ODB++ data contains in the symbols section a separate shape for every angle of the shape where this is no longer the case for the ODB++  data of VX.1. Here the angle of the symbols is specified in the features section. This is inline with the change made to the ODB++ version 7 specification September 2007.


Now I would like to know which CAM tools and their version correctly support the latest specification of the ODB++ version 7 format?

For CAM350 this seems to be version 11.


Thanks in advance,
