    Default Eagle to Gerber help (again). Can someone convert for me?

    Hello,
    I have two small boards in EAGLE for which I need to generate Gerbers to send to Elecrow.
    Yes, its true that I still haven't learned EAGLE but I still promise to do so.
    Hopefully, this next winter.
    I've attached the two .brd files.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Here you go - I used the Gerber job I use for OSH Park so it should be OK for you as well.

    THANK YOU so much.
    Are CAM files pretty standard or do I need to be concerned about using elecrow's CAM file?
    At any rate, I'll send these to elecrow and see what they say.
    Thanks again.

    There may be slight differences - especially with the drill files. If they have their own CAM files then use that for sure. The OSH Park version did not output two of the label levels so I added them and use that for everything now.

    I'll tell you what - give this a try. Put the unzipped file in your 'cam' directory, load your .brd file and run the CAM processor with this job file. It should spit out all of the files into the same location as your .brd file. If you can't get it working, I'll convert your board. One of those 'teach a man to fish' things...

    Happy to try. I only have the 'free version' of EAGLE.
    What version of EAGLE should I be using for this?

    I'm using Eagle 6.2.0 but I think the same CAM file worked in 5.9.0 as well.

    Now I need to know which "options" to select.
    For example, there are several Gerber listings.
    Any input as to how to fill this page out is appreciated. (screen shot below)

    No - if you open the job file I provided it should select the device automatically.

    Open the .brd file as you normally do
    Click File->CAM Processor (or click the 'film strip' icon)
    From the CAM Processor box do File->Open and point to the job file I provided
    Click on "Process Job" and it should produce all the files
    Zip them all up and send off to the PCB house
