    The batchpcb image is too small to see hole placement - the holes in the pdf from 4pcb has no component and trace reference to compare with. How did you produce the Gerber files?

    I used BatchPcb and got fine results lately. It's a good idea by SparkFun people. I hope it keeps going.

    Check the FAQ on drill files:
    Check here
    And check here.

    Both mention drill files -- one is about scale or something, and the other is about the origin.

    There is also something about format of the drill file -- whether something precedes or follows somethiing else -- worth spending some time reading.

    Mine worked fine, and showed up fine in the preview. I made mine with KiCad.
