What type of driller?

Are you talking about just drilling the pads & holes?
Or, are you talking about a board milling machine?

Usually, board milling machines will take the Gerber & process it specifically for
the milling machine.  As for a hole drilling machine, the 1 of the generated drill
files might already be in a suitable format for the machine.  Remember, Protel
generates (if I remember correctly) a .drl, a .drr & a .txt which all contain the
drill data.  The .txt file should be somewhere close to HPGL & Gerber.  It's
basically a set of  x&y coordinates.

Subject: [PEDA] Software for Isolation Milling


| We are considering to build some prototype PCBs by isolation milling.
| Has anybody got experience which software is suitable to generate HPGL- or
DXF-Files for the drilling machine from our Protel 99 SE
| Gerber-Files?
| Is there some free or cheap software available?
|
| Thank you for all of your help!
