Generate standard centroid file?

Is there a way to generate a standard centroid file for pick and place?  That's usually: 


RefDes, Layer, LocationX, LocationY, Rotation


The PickandPlace button made something close but it's putting the footprint name first and the refdes last.


Tahnk you

Hi @eric_engineer ,


I hope you're doing well. There are several ULPs that can be used for centroid export.  Besides the one you tried, if you go into the ULPs that ship with Fusion 360 there is a screaming circuits one that should give you what you need. Additionally, you can take the output you currently have and bring it into excel, swap the columns and then re-export it.


Let me know if you continue to run into problems.


Best Regards,
