Artwork Adds RS274X Support to ASM 500/501/502 for Windows
Version 5.23 of Artwork's DXF to Gerber translator family now supports RS274X format. This applies to both the DXF to Gerber translator and to the Gerber viewing program. Designers of both PC boards and RF/analog artwork will appreciate the ability to
deliver RS274X to their mask and board shop.
What's equally important is that our GBRVU program lets you view and plot 274X
exactly as the photoplotter will create the film - a feature that is not available
from any other DXF to Gerber translator.
What is 274X?
RS274X is an extension to the standard "Gerber RS274D" that solves several important
limitations in the standard Gerber data:
- The aperture list and format information are embedded in the beginning of each file.
No need to transfer this information separately anymore.
- Custom aperture descriptions are now part of the 274X language. Special pads such
as thermals can be exactly described without need for photoplot or CAM operator's
to manually create them.
- Filled polygons are supported. Your complex files are greatly reduced in size.
- Merging of multiple layers "Paint and Scratch" is directly supported. No more
complicated compositing instructions that incur CAD charges at the mask shop.
