Multi-layer Gerber file in viewer

Our online Gerber viewer was created to provide everyone an easy and accurate reference viewer for Gerber and Excellon files. If you run across a tricky Gerber or Excellon file that doesn't display correctly in the viewer, let us know.

The core parsing and rendering for this Gerber viewer was inspired from the open source gerbv viewer logic. If you need to refer to the Gerber (RS-274X) spec, the latest version of the Gerber specification can be downloaded from the Ucamco website. The official Excellon format description is available as well (archived from the original on 2007-10-30).
