I am currently using Altium Designer on business and Eagle at home.
Is it possible to export the Altium *.PcbDoc files to use them with 
Eagle anyhow?
It is possbile to export *.brd files with Altium, but they can't be 
opened with Eagle?!?

Thanks in advance ^^

Literally using them is not possible.
But importing them as a static graphic element via gerber files seems 

Anyway, Altium offers a license model that allows you to use an office 
license at home on condition of both copies not running at the very same 
I can't put my finger on the exact name, but i'm positive, i read about 
it some day.

u can use a copy of AD at home, WHEN this licence is not used at work.

But please check the EULA.

The problem is unsolved yet.  But if you HAVE Altium somewhere, you can 
export your designs to ACCEL ASCII format. Having them in ASCII, you can 
import in EAGLE via the import-accel.ulp ULP script.
