  • unplated drills are now exported as mechanic drills,
  • component packages are exported with all pad-stack information (copper, mask, paste),
  • each rotation angle and each mirroring of the component is possible,
  • all component propterties are exported
  • pad/drill properties like geometrie/ via names are broadly exported,
  • test points are tagged with the relative Information in GenCAD.
