Translate your CAD data in seconds, as standalone tool or integrated within existing CAD processes.
Viewplot allows you to inspect various CAD formats, take measurements and manipulate data.Create high
resolution PDF documentation within the graphical user interface or in batch mode.
It is the most complete and inexpensive tool available on the market !
The Viewer is absolutely free and include the same functionality as the licensed version.
Viewplot can be used and shared by anyone needing to view & print electronics design and manufacturing data,
as PCB Designers, PCB suppliers, Assemblers, Designers and Testers.

The user interface is customizable, personalized hot-keys allow users full interface control.
Standard Windows interface; Menus, toolbars, and other interface features follow Windows standards.
Including context-sensitive menu's.
Viewplot delivers performance and features unmatched in the industry.
The representation from the input data on the screen is extremely sharp, it will gives a clear view
from the input data, even from a "View all".
Makes verification much easier and more comfortable, comparing with all other Gerber viewers
using a bitmap view, this will result in a spaghetti look.
Viewplot is designed to reduce manufacturing production expenses and enhance productivity.
Verification capabilities ensure efficient workflow to manufacturing equipment.
Viewplot runs on a desktop or laptop Windows PC.
Easy to use and inexpensive
Supports RS-274X Gerber, including macro apertures, repeat functions etc

Scaling options; Fit to page, 13 Page sizes formats
Gerber to PDF translation can be execute from command line in batch mode
Rotate, Move, Scale, Oversize, Mirror or delete
Add objects (Gerber, DXF, Hpgl and Drill holes)
Mentor Graphics Board Station users can integrate Viewplot within Fablink and Librarian.
Run Viewplot after you create the artworks, rename & reorder artwork names, and create the high resolution PDF output
documentation by a push on the button. (Gerber to PDF batch)
On top of that we also provide a DXF to Mentor Board-Station Board-outline conversion.
Mechanical board information can be loaded in Viewplot (Updates can be made, e.g. adding additional Drill holes)
Export to the Board Station file format, that will draw the board-outline (including drill holes).
For licensed users of Viewplot the additional user-ware for the Board Station interface will be provided without
The Viewplot viewer is completely free of charge. Viewplot can be used and shared by anyone needing to (re)view
electronics design and or manufacturing data.
By combining all the input files needed for manufacturing or (re)view in one complete Viewplot Job file.
Viewplot easily transfers work from design to colleagues for review or to fabrication.
The Viewer includes the same functionality as the licensed version. except saving output data.
For saving a valid license key is required.
Saving in the internal Viewplot format (Job file) is part of the Viewer !
