Unfortunately I can quickly kill that idea... They have encrypted all the positions and data in the files... I tried all I could to import/convert them to a useable gerber... Didn't work out as they swap the data around as well as encrypting it with a completely non standard system... Given a lot of time I could probably crack it... But it would be a lot faster to re-do the boards in Eagle...

They clearly want you to use them for manufacturing... And Then once you have done that, they say they can give (sell?) you the gerbers... Screw that...
