GerbView is an advanced yet easy to use application that allows you to view, print, convert, and markup Gerber, HPGL, HPGL / 2, Excellon and raster files. GerbView supports both RS274D and RS274X (with embedded aperture information) Gerber formats. You can use GerbView to convert from the old RS274D Gerber standard to the new RS274X with embedded aperture information.
GerbView is an application that packs all the necessary features for helping you view, print and markup Gerber, HPGL and EXcellon files.
The app sports a user-friendly interface and a clean layout that allows users to perform multiple actions on the go. You can drag and drop the documents directly into the main window, or add them using the browse function. Hotkeys are also available, and they can be reassigned.
It is possible to create a workspace that can include multiple files. The workspace can be exported or imported, provided that the file format is GBW.
Not only does the program help you open and check the contents of your documents, but it also provides some editing tools such as arrows, lines, images, ellipses and polygons. You can even add text and images to your documents and save the workspace to a separate file.
GerbView supports metric and imperial coordinates, and it allows users to add headers and footers, copy the selected region to the clipboard, and then paste it into another Windows application.
You may opt for color or black and white printing, and you can also preview the documents before printing them.
It is possible to export HPGL, Gerber and Excellon to the following file formats: Autodesk DXF, Audodesk DWF, CGM, HPGL / 2, Adobe PDF, and others.
The program can save documents to raster formats, such as TIFF, CALS, PNG, JPEG, PDF and BMP.
