    -Ensure that the gerber variant used is handled by your pcb manufacturer
    -Sometime better to add mechanical cut out on each layer
    -check your gerber files with an independent (free) software

    If you are running your own machine, always check the final code to make sure the machine is not told to move somewhere invalid!
    If you send the files out, any machine operator should be competent enough to make sure that the code that is sent to the machine will work.
