gerber to pcb

i have not seen that .. i have seen utility to convert bmp (bitmap) to protel file .. but it could be way fory you .. just save gerber as bmp (layer by layer)
and convert .. maybe you can import protel file ;0))

If I'm right PCAD's Camtastic can do that.

gerber to pcb

gerber to powerpcb is possible but u will lose some paramters durring conversion process
u can use cam350 for conversion by creating netlist and so on....
but it is not a good suggection since chances of hidded error

Re: gerber to pcb

If you want any of layer as a reference for routing . you can convert ther gerbr in to dxf using"GerbTool" and can import as dxf.

Re: gerber to pcb

Most CAM tools capable of grouping objects to create parts can do this.

First you load gerbers & drill
Define parts etc
Then extract netlist

For Power PCB you would be best to use a Gerber editor which will export a native PPCB file such as Cam350 from Downstream.

You will not find any free veiwer I know of that will do this easily.
