Mentor PADs?

Would it be possible to use gerbers generated by other CAD tools? I believe that the actual generated files follow the same format but the file extensions are different. 


I've placed numerous orders when using Eagle but I'm switching to PADs and wanted to be sure that there wouldn't be an issue. The files open up in gerber viewers the same (ViewMate and GerbV).


I just wanted to be sure before I put in an order.
