Well... with enough work, maybe. Usually when EDA tools generate PDFs, they do it on some sort of scale (PDF is a scaled printed format, after all), and a composite printout might have all the layers in it at once (you just can't see them all when it's finished drawing, because they overlap).

Possibly there's a route PDF - EPS - DXF - GBR or something like that. Or deconstruct the files (PDF files are just lists of objects) and do it by hand... have fun with that.. tongue.gif


Answering questions is a tricky subject to practice. Not due to the difficulty of formulating or locating answers, but due to the human inability of asking the right questions; a skill that, were one to possess, would put them in the "answering" category.
