Anybody know if it is possible to convert CADStar 7.1 files to Protel99SE.


There are two posibilities I know of:
1. Use "Cadstar to Protel Converter" (by Steve Fallon) - you may find it in
   Files section of Yahoo Protel User's Group (you need to be a member to
   get to it):  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/protel-users/files/

   It converts Cadstar7 CDI format to Protel 2.8 or Autotrax PCB format.

  As far as I know it doesn't convert all entities correctly, but may be
  quite useful (and it's free).
2. Use Orcad Layout 9.x as an intermediate tool - it imports Cadstar CDI format

   and then, it may be imported to Protel.
   I haven't used it to any "serious" conversion but from my tests I can say
   that it works better than solution No.1 - playing a bit with Layers Matching
   may even improve the results.
