Information about the software

GerbViewTM is an advanced yet simple-to use application that allows you to view/print and convert Gerber and ODB++ files, as well as Adobe PDF, Excellon or HPGL/2.

GerbView supports both RS-274D Gerber and RS-274X Gerber formats. It can also be used to convert Gerber files to RS-274X Extended format. The new extended Gerber format contains embedded aperture information and using this format will minimize the risk for errors during the manufacturing of the PCB.

GerbView’s pdf to CAD capability allows you convert Adobe PDF files to Gerber and Autodesk DXF.

Gerbview lets you visualize your design either on the screen or in print. Your true design is now available online. Use the precise measure and query tool to verify apertures, tools, distances, etc.

GerbView lets you create workspaces that contain files from the supported file formats. The workspace can be saved for later use. The workspace you save will link to the design files. All you have to do is reload the workspace file in order to see the entire design.

The workspace can include markup elements such as text, barcodes (arrows, lines), images, ellipses, polygons, and text. All markup components can be burn-in and added to a Gerber layers. This feature allows you to easily add text or barcode images directly to a layer.

GerbView can rasterize single files, or whole workspaces, and save to one of the supported raster formats.

You may print scaled or in real size. All Windows based plotters and printers are supported. Poster mode, also called tiled pages or poster mode, is used to print large designs on several smaller A4/Letter sheets.
