How to Convert Gerber to Dwg

By ShamikaM

Gerber is a file format used in the electronics industry. Gerber files contain information about electronic chips and circuits. DWG is a file format that stores design data for CAD packages. Gerber files can be indirectly converted to DWG files so that they can be read by any CAD software program.
