    NC Parameters Reply
    I have what I consider an odd problem. When running standard RS274X art work,specifically NC Drill,, the tool came back and said " ERROR(SPMHMF-362): The number of integer places specified for the drill output data is not enough for this design.
     ERROR(SPMHMF-336): Program terminated."
     
    I had not seen this error before.  THe tool came back later to tell me that I needed to run NC ROUTE.
     
    Whats happening here?

    Our company builds board in millimetetrs, so I run in to this fairly often.  I think, if I remember correctly, the default NC Parameters for Excellon Format is 2.5.  In my case once a board get over 99.99999 millimeters in a direction, that format no longer works and I have to change to 3.5.  I suspect this is your issue.

     As for the NC Route, if you have slots defined in your board, NC Route will define those in a NC Route file similar to the drill file.
