Can I send my data in AutoCAD Format?
It is possible to convert AutoCAD DXF (ASCII) data into other formats that can be used for mask manufacture. The main requirement for mask manufacture is the specification of areas. The problem is that AutoCAD also allows the specification of points, lines, arcs which, on their own, have no area, therefore are unsuitable for mask manufacture. If the correct AutoCAD constructs are used then the conversion process is straightforward. Statistically, jobs specified as DXF are twice as likely to have challenges during data preparation the data compared to other data formats such as MEBES or Calma GDSII Stream. As a result, a conversion charge may be applicable.
