    Default Any EAGLE experts out there willing to look at this brd file?

    This file worked in an older version of EAGLE, but not the latest.
    As a result OSHpark can't process it.
    OSH thinks there might be a problem with polygon overlay in the lower right; but not positive.
    I'm not versed in EAGLE and I figure someone here can fix this in 2 minutes.

    Thanks in Advance for any help!

    So.... here's the file in the attachments (its little, 28KB)

    Well - - when I run DRC it calls out 69 errors - the majority are dimension errors but it doesn't like your pours (polygons) at the upper left corners - you may want to redraw those and increase the size of your board outline a hair all the way around. DRC is your friend! Check if OSHPark has a set of DRC rules (I think they did). Also I always had problem on the gerbers and straight board files. I found their CAM job (or just uploading my .brd files since they just run their CAM job on them...) didn't include a couple layers and all my parts had no names/values - - not good...

    I'm attaching the one I use to create Gerbers that I have used for OSH myself.

    I'm not an expert but check all the locations where polygons change direction. Any overlap even by the smallest amount will fail. With version 5 and 6 the program will report an error during a check but maybe earlier versions did not. I had this happen when moving a polygon. DRC found it but I had to look very close to see the overlap.

    OSHPark does have a DRC file which the highly recommend you use.

    No need. OSHpark likes it now and THAT is what I needed.
    Thanks again.

    Okay.... I have another board with the same problem.
    Was fine with prior versions of EAGLE, but now won't process at OSHpark.
    Yes, I promise to start learning EAGLE, but I would certainly appreciate some help again.
    Here's the brd file.
