Pick & place file generated by Altium does not match the actual component rotations/positions

+3
−0

I am generating files for manufacturing my design in Altium 22 and ordering through Eurocircuits.

What I noticed during the ordering process is that the rotation of many components (and sometimes the position) is incorrect. Most often, a component will be rotated by 90 degrees off of what it should be.

I tried to track this problem down but it is unclear where it is coming from. The footprints are correct, and the 3D bodies are also aligned correctly. What could be the issue here and how can I fix it so my pick & place file is correct?

Does your produced CPL file correspond to the Altium layout, or to what Eurocircuits Assembly Visualizer is showing? Open the CPL file in Excel and check. If the Altium output is wrong, I'd say check your output settings when you are producing the CPL file. If Eurocircuits Visualizer is wrong, check your CSV file content formatting - if it's formatted wrong, fix it. If you think it's Visualizer error, reach out to Eurocircuits.
