Navigate to your Zuken layout tool, if you are using the CADSTAR express product then stop right here, IPC2581 is not supported by that product and as such inspectAR will not work. Once you are in the board layout click ‘Manufacture to find the export’
From ‘Manufacture’ press IPC-2581...
The following dialog will launch, take careful note of the ‘Output to’ field since that is where you will need to look to find the fileonce everything is done. You will need to select Mode as ‘All’, keep allother fields at their defaults.
Click ‘Execute’ and your file will appear in the output directory just like it does here, it will be an xml file.
