User Reviews

  • Good

  • Very good tool. Pan and zoom are very easy using the mouse. I like the check boxes to enable/disable the layers as required. However, for some reason, i was not able to save the project and retreive it. Maybe is has something to do with the files being saved on a network drive.

  • Simple and easy to use. Dislikes: 1 - no 'mirror' option (e.g. useful when checking text on bottom of board) 2 - non-native file dialog when running on windows. 3 - doesn't handle rotated pads that are created by diptrace 3.0.0.2 4 - no snapping to shape centers, corners, edge centers when measuring which makes measuring inacurate. likes: 1 - easy layer toggle. 2 - good pan/zoom functionality - no scrollbar use required.

  • gerbv is a best software I can find. It is great that is open source. All is ok only 2 bugs i can find. If in path where you have gerber files are some character (šćč...) return error message and second some DRL file are not in same dimensions as other gerber files. Wish: Do a better measure distance tools. If is possible to do some tools which snap to object (pads) edge to easy measuring.
