Eagle is straight forward at producing printouts for a positive photographic pcb making process.

(NOTE THE TEXT ON THE PCB APPEARS
REVERSED THIS IS CORRECT)

If your photosensitive board
requires a negative image
such as this, another stage on
the process is required..

3.5.1 Other software
required

The following software is required to manipulate the
special CAM (computer aided manufacturing) files
created by Eagle (and other pcb CAD software) into
the printed image you require. All this software is
shareware with no fees attached for its use by
students.

* Install GhostScript - from http://www.ghostscript.com
* Install GSView - from http://www.ghostgum.com.au/

Conversion process
This process creates a '.ps' (postscript file), it is the best output from Eagle to use. It will keep the
board exactly the same and correct size for printing.

* Open yourboard.brd in Eagle
* From within the Eagle Board Editor start the CAM Processor
* select device as PS_INVERTED
* Scale = 1
* file = .ps
* make sure fill pads is NOT selected this
makes small drill holes in the acetate which
we use to line up the drill with when drilling
* for layers select only 16,17,18 and 20,
* make sure ALL other layers are NOT

selected.

* Select process job
* if you will use this process a lot save this
cam setup as so that you can reuse it again

Open the TDA2822verA.ps file with
Ghostview for printing and print it onto an over
head transparency. Make sure you can see
the drill holes!
