How to generate correct silkscreen from Eagle | 18 July, 2018

We use eagle for PCB prototype design but it does not have in Gerber CAM scripts by default, when we export the Gerber, layer seems to be wrong place.

I want ask you how I can do proper Gerber output for bottom silkscreen as long other layers (mask, top silkscreen...) are right.do you have some CAM script for eagle which will do proper Gerber output for bottom silkscreen? This PCB was made by this manufacturer http://www.allpcb.com/D4

Given that your PCB is a through hole design the top and bottom overlays (mask) are the same. You don't need a bottom silkscreen in this example you have shown us

First, you need to select the CAM Processor I am sure you will know already (Kinda looks like a camera in the toolbar Now you can either add each layer manually, or Eagle does have some default Gerber generators that you can use. If you click on File->Open->Job, you can select either 'Gerber' or 'Gerber274x' If you create the layer yourself you just need to press 'Add' in the bottom right of the screen and give it a name that means something to you, and the correct extension (I assume you know this) but it typically is '.GBO' for the bottom silkscreen (gerber bottom overlay). Then on the right hand side of the screen you need to select the layers that it will extract the Gerber from - in your case I imagine it will be something like 'bDocu' or 'bPlace' or 'bNames' or all of them Once you've done this, if you click on process job / process selection, it will create your Gerber file for you. This will be put in your project directory, and you can then view it using a Gerber viewer

and do not forget to double check your gerbers with gerber viewer before sending them for production
