How to save money for PCB prototypes

Here two PCBs file need to combine one PCB file, it will save much setup fee for prototype.How to build one PCB file with different PCBs in Allegro?

Below is the second PCB.

PCB combine 1

We create a new PCB module.and select follow the red circle.

PCB combine 2

Save the module with mdd.then copy the second PCB into the first PCB.

PCB combine3

The first PCB select like below:

PCB combine 4

PCB combine 5

Then you can see we combined the second pcb into the first PCB through place component method, you need named it when place the new module.after that every legend stick up the name,so we can use below method to solve this problem.

PCB combine 6

In the second PCB,save the silkscreen layer with correct format.

PCB combine 7

Input the correct silkscreen layer into the first PCB.

PCB combine 8

Then the silkscreen is perfect now.

PCB combine 9
