Also they expect artwork in Gerber format. You MUST have a Gerber viewer to
check your output plots!!! Otherwise you will waste a LOT of money.

Look for a program called "GCPrevue" which is a free Gerber code viewer.

This allow you to check your aperture tables, plots and drill tables for
accuracy.
