Convert Eagle to TARGET 3001!
TARGET 3001! is able to import Eagle* files and Eagle* libraries. If you wish to convert only an Eagle* board file e.g. to use the TARGET 3001! milling tool for milling a board, we recommend just to save only the Eagle *.brd file into a separate directory to use it with the ulp-program.
