Converting BOT to SGI

BOT is a Gerber format, which means it is part of a larger group of 2-D vector images used as a standard in the printed circuit board (PCB) industry. Gerber images are processed by photoplotting machinery in order to produce PCBs and they contain descriptions of different layers of the board or other details (electrical connections, vias, pads, drilling or milling data etc.). BOT files describe the bottom copper layer of a PCB and they can be used in the production of such a board without any other external files.

SGI (Silicon Graphics Image) is a raster image format associated with Silicon Graphics workstations. It is a bitmap file that can store black-and-white, gray-scale and color images, and may also contain color maps and alpha channels. SGI files are sometimes referred to as RGBs and can either use no image compression or RLE compression. Alternative extensions for the SGI format are BW, RGB and RGBA.

Select BOTs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.

Choose Output Folder

Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .sgi files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.

Select SGI as Output Format

Then pick the SGI as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.

Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!
