In addition to the layers that Chuan lists, here are a few more (inner layers) from EAGLE.

The following layers and output file names are commonly used to create the output, although others can be used when needed. The ‘Layers’ section below are the Object Layer Selections available when generating output from EAGLE. If you are using the default .CAM jobs within EAGLE software, we prefer the default extensions be used only because it’s easier to recognize the layer types.

If you have questions about this post, please reply and we will do our best to assist you!
