Negative artwork print

Hi all, I want to know if someone could ever print the pcb artwork in negative (black turns white and vice versa) in order to make the uv film technique, thank you very much.

I am not sure if this can be done in Altium, but you can simply invert gerber files.

- In case you are sending your PCB to a PCB manufacturer, just make a note: Negative / Positive.

- If you would like to print the layer e.g. if you are making the PCB at home, you can use for example the free version of ViewMate ( http://www.pentalogix.com/viewmate.php ), invert the layers there and print them out.

I attached also examples of the layer printed into PDF.
