In response to many inquiries from GC-Prevue users, GraphiCode created GC-PrevuePlus to fill the need for an inexpensive Gerber translator and editor. Building on proven functionality from GraphiCode's existing family of products, GC-PrevuePlus takes GC-Prevue to the next level. In addition to GC-Prevue's capabilities, GC-PrevuePlus includes AutoCAD, DXF/DWG import, enhanced measurement tools, data editing capabilities and multiple output formats as well as the ability to easily translate Gerber or DXF into component placement files for use with SMT, through hole and inspection machines.
