7 Files Need to be Included in Gerber file
Posted: 05:32 PM July 11, 2019 Updated: 07:59 PM October 12, 2019

Anytime you transmit Gerber file to NextPCB fab house,The Gerber file should have 7 files below:

Top Copper (GTL)

Top Soldermask (GTS)

Top Silkscreen (GTO)

Bottom Copper (GBL)

Bottom Soldermask (GBS)

Bottom Silkscreen (GBO)

Drill File (2:4 leading - remember this)

What is this GTL, GTS? These are the file extensions that the CAM processor will produce. A silkscreen is also called an 'overlay' (hence, GTO). And for your reference, a soldermask is also called a solder 'stop layer' because the soldermask prevents solder from being where it is not wanted.

    It would help if SOMEWHERE on your website you stated which versions of Gerber you can process. In particular, X2?
