Eagle – How to generate Gerber files
You just finished with your PCB design in Eagle but the manufacturer does not accept .brb files. Follow the guide bellow and you will be able to generate Gerber files in Eagle.
1.Open your board in Eagle and make sure that .brb and .sch are the only files in your folder.
2. Click on the CAM Processor.
3.Download the bellow zip file and decompress it.

7. Put your folder into a zip file and upload it to the manufacturer

Please check if .GKO file is created. This file contains the board outline and is necessary for the process. If the file is not there you can use GerbV tool to generate it, following this guide:
An alternative that I like to use to create board outlines is the “PCB PANELIZER & GERBER TOOL SUITE” that I will discuss about in a later post
