The advantage of the latest FAB 3000 V8 update is that you're able to save your PCB designs as individual job files.
What are Job Files? The Job file allows you to save/archive a single design from a workspace, for easy usage/integration into another FAB 3000 workspace.
To Save a design as a Job file, go to menu: File / Save Job File...
Top Open a Job file, go to menu: File / Open Job File...
In this tutorial I'll demonstrate how to save multiple Job file(s) and then a create a panel with unlimited PCB's.
Here's the Steps to create Job File (i.e 1UP) for each PCB design:
To get an idea how the Job file and Matrix works together, start FAB 3000 and go to menu: File / Import / CAM Matrix..., and select the matrix file "CreatePanelEmbeddedMatrixandJob.fm6" (located in the FAB 3000 installation folder C:\Numerical Innovations\FAB3000V8\examples). Watch how FAB 3000 loads multiple jobs, creates a panel, and merges the job files - the matrix file very customizable and you can make it do just about anything. To view what's happening, you can open the Matrix file in a text editor.
