This is very good and user friendly software but its Help documents is not sufficient for new user who want to learn this tool.

274x file

IanP said:
... there is another simple and free gerber viewer: McCad GView2.
Can be downloaded from:
https://www.mccad.com/FREE_GerberViewer.html

This is, probably, a nice tool. But it has two (2) problems.
- Free version has a limitation for the board size.
- There's no way to uninstall this utility.

There is an online gerber viewer for Gerber274x and Excellon 1/2 files. You don't have to install anything, just use it online.

www.gerber-viewer.com

274x viewer

I know this thread is old, but for everyone finding this post via Google...

Another free and very easy-to-use online gerber viewer is www.circuitpeople.com. It handles parts of the gerber format that others don't, and also tolerates most of the errors CAD systems create in their output (there's no such thing as a perfect gerber file).

Despite being free, and new, CircuitPeople is getting a lot of use. That said, it isn't perfect and we know it. Give it a try and if you have suggestions for improvements, please let us know.

I vote for GC-Prevue as well.

Valor viewer (VUV) is only advantage, if you try to open ODB++ packages only

There's also a new online Gerber and Excellon viewer which uses HTML5 to render everything in Firefox (completely done in Javascript and renders to Canvas). It's currently only for Firefox, but they're supposedly working on a Silverlight version too for IE users.

Hmm,

Cool.

It would be good if:

We could move the layers up/down.
change the colours (A list of what layer is what colour would be good)

Perhaps you could publish some recommendation & instructions.

What about RS274 (not X) what about entering an aperture table?
Or adjusting the ncdrill table?


I have just tried to load top legend, copper & mask so that i can see mask with copper on top then legend on top of that (like I can in GC-Prevue etc) but am struggling.

The colours are too similar & the mask is always over the top of the copper no matter which I upload first.

A good start though & I hope it improves over time.

It's looking a lot better now, I can see things in colours much better, set the colours and even the opacity of them.

Even moving layers up/down.

It would not open an excellon format NC drill file (.spl) though?

What about accessing the apeture lists, drill tables, ability to measure & align layers?

An excellent little online utility in the making (as long as it is free - lol)
