Few tips :
- all position and output file units are in .XX mm format
- work area is 300x300 mm ( dont try to load biger one ), however its limited to 120x120mm in freeware version
- always use positive coords
- place your designs near to coords origin into 1.st quadrant in CAD
- generate Excellon file from CAD with options :
* use absolute coords system !
* keep leading and trailing zeros !
* use 4.2 / mm number format
