    If your testpoints are standard components, you may be able to use filter like this: "Name Like 'TP*' and IsPad". Then in properties panel mark these pads as testpoints:

    Then, in job file, in Fabrication Outputs -> Test Point Report you can generate something like this:

    Exporting Test Points

    I need to export my test points for input into a cam software for location holes for cnc drilling and inserting Coda test pin's for a bed of nails.

    What is the best procedure to export the test point locations for this purpose?

    The test points are on the bottom layer, is there a way i can define the points i want to use and export only those?
    I am fine with every other layer export.

    Thanks
