    i am using ExpressPCB and i have two layer board.

    I need to print one of the images (bottom or top ) flipped and
    having trouble.

    there is a flip option for components so i tried to make my
    drawing a component but i can not create a component with traces.
    So what is the method for producing a flipped/mirrored image of
    the PCB traces ?

    I can export to a bmp but

    thanks for any help,

    Get some inkjet transparency sheets from the office supply store.
    (These are made to be used with a classroom transparency projector.)
    Print the layer, then flip it over.

    You print it regular,convert to BMP or GIF and use an imaging program
    for flippie floppie no flappie.

    You might also look deep in the printer options to see if the printer
    driver supports mirror-flipping the page (most laser drivers do,
    somewhere deep in the options), without the program knowing about it.

    I don't suppose that you tried creating a "flipped" version of the
    component to work with.

    hi Joseph,
    thanks for the reply, thats exactly what i ended up doing.

    fortunately it was a small PCB and not too time consuming but if
    i had known the software would not let me flip in the begining
    then i would have started with the flipped drawing :}

    i was hoping i was just missing sometjing or an iudea someone
    allready found on how to do this,

    thanks again,
