Could anyone guide me how to export IPC-D-356A format from Xpedition Layout VX.2.5 or how to import IPC-D-356B into Incam software?
Xpedition exports IPC-D-356 and IPC-D-356B.According to the Frontline website, InCAM imports IPC-D-356 and IPC-D-356A.
The best way to exchange data from Xpedition to InCAM is using ODB++.The type of data exported can be controlled on the Xpedition side if that is a requirement.
Select IPC-D-356 from the list, Choose the options you want and click 'OK'
No version A or B here.
as per KBA mg23687:
From VX.2.4 it is possible to generate IPC-D-356 without using Report Writer:In Xpedition PCB, select File > Export > General Interface > IPC-D-356
For IPC-D-356B:In Expedition PCB, select File > Export > IPC-D-356B from the menus to generate IPC-D-356 data.
Note: This feature is available since EXP2005 release. A Fablink XE Pro license is required to generate IPC-D-356B file from Expedition PCB. If you have this license available, you can enable this license through Setup > License Module > Acquire Fablink XE Pro.
Note: This feature is also available in Fablink XE Pro tool for panel designs.
IPC-D-356 output can also be generated using Report Writer...
