Do file conversions tranfer all data from digitized patterns?
When we digitize your patterns our Gerber CAD system will keep all original digized data as a Gerber ZIP file however, when converting files to other formats not all information is always transferrable to another CAD program or system.

Example: converting Gerber files that contain pucholes to PDF or illustrator format.

Punch holes, will not transfer to PDF or illustrator as there are certain restrictions and rules used by each cad program.

In this case we can manually add punch holes in the conversion process to your PDF file so you can see punch holes on your patterns.
