Do you have ever made Making Mylar mask using AutoCad?

I'm not familiar with this particular problem, although have seen other
problems with using AutoCAD for mask design.  You might try LinkCAD,
which is a nice utility for interconverting DXF, PS, GDS, and CIF file
formats -- it also allows you to see your mask design.  This can be
purchased through Bay Technologies for about $500 (before it went
commercial, it was only $25!)  Several of the SNF staff have this
program, so ask one of us if you would like to give it a try.
