I designed a PCB using Eagle 7.7, PCB's are built and everything was shipped to a board house to assemble and solder the parts to the PCB.  They are now requesting  CAD file, not gerber files, in order to use their pick n place.  The file must be something that has reference designators and X/Y coordinates.  Anyone know how to generate such a file with Eagle?

 

I'll try looking over the new Autodesk website, but I'm not optimistic.

There is a ULP that provides component centroid coordinates. That has been useful for  one of my CMs. Not sure where I got it. Can send it to in a few hours.

I started looking through the ULP folder but didn't see anything yet.  I'll keep looking but go ahead and send that file when you can.  Thanks!

With the package I have (RIMU) there is a drop down menu line for that.

 

 

it produces a file that has all the components locations and type
