Mentor Expedition PCB --> PowerPCB - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Could anyone advice me that what format could I export in the Mentor Expedition PCB software? So, I could import it into the PowerPCB software? I have tried to export the PCB in the Expedition software in .asc (ASCII) format and import it in the PowerPCB. I found that there are some parts is missing shown in the PowerPCB compared with the Expedition shown. Moreover, some parts should be flood in the Expeditoin shown. There are not flood in the PowerPCB. Therefore, could anyone suggest me to have a better export format file in the Expedition. So, I could import it into the PowerPCB and without so much error.
