Hi Guys,

I want to generate PDF of individual layer of PCB, but I can not find any setting in outjobs!
Do we have an automated method to do it, or have to print the GERBER mask data?

@Lakshmi , thank you for the link; but what I need is a sperate print page per PCB layer, the smart PDF generate a stacked print, not helping in this case.

Maybe this will give you an idea how to do it: Altium Designer Tutorial - Printing https://youtu.be/kPv3-zWlzms

@JohnsonMiller did you find out how to do that? I remembered, this can also help: https://youtu.be/W21dORx5ceI?t=781

@robertferanec , thank you for the reply, I saw both videos. The second is more close to what I need, but in the end I am looking for something automated. Suppose a 16 layer PCB, how much effort we should put to tune the prints in outjob. I guess it should be available in the menus or by a selection in SmartPDF, what you say?

You can always use the same Job file and copy it between projects. What may need to be adjusted is the bottom layer.

PS: Or at least I do not know how to automatically link the prints to BOTTOM layer - I am not sure if there is feature like that. Anyone knows?
