Description

GBR2DXF translates Gerber photoplot data for printed circuit boards into AutoCAD's DXF data format. Designers responsible for assembly documentation or package design can use this translator to move board outlines, silk screen, or padmaster data into AutoCAD or into a variety of other CAD packages that read DXF.

A unique feature of our translator is the ability to convert each Gerber trace into an outline. Many CAD systems do not support the display of lines with width. With our special outline function, the designer still gets an accurate representation of the board on his display. The following screens give you a feel for how smoothly GBR2DXF will take you through the translation process.
