Tracing the silkscreen with FlatCAM

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 22:53:42 GMT

I have had no success with the procedure described in http://caram.cl/software/flatcam/tracing-the-silkscreen-with-flatcam/. FlatCam gives the following error message: > open_gerber "Control Panel v1.plc" -follow 1 -outname GTO_follow Converting units to MM. ERROR: 'list' object has no attribute 'is_empty' Python traceback: <type 'exceptions.AttributeError'> File "C:Program Files (x86)FlatCAMshapelyffinity.py", line 46, in affine_transform > if geom.is_empty: File "C:Program Files (x86)FlatCAMshapelyffinity.py", line 199, in scale > return affine_transform(geom, matrix) File "C: latcamcamlib.py", line 1491, in scale File "C: latcamcamlib.py", line 854, in convert_units File "C: latcamFlatCAMObj.py", line 579, in convert_units File "C: latcamFlatCAMApp.py", line 1046, in new_object File "C: latcam clCommandsTclCommandOpenGerber.py", line 87, in execute File "C: latcam clCommandsTclCommand.py", line 302, in execute_call while executing "open_gerber "Control Panel v1.plc" -follow 1 -outname GTO_follow"

"-follow 1" or "-follow 0" causes the same error. If the "-follow" option is dropped a geometry object is created, but it is useless for the purpose of generating the component silkscreen.
