Converting GBL to DWF

A GBL file contains the descriptions of the bottom copper layer of a printed circuit board (PCB) and generally functions as an input file for a photoplotter used in the fabrication of such boards. The GBL format is part of the Gerber group, which includes over 20 extensions that function as standards in the PCB industry. Similar formats include GTS, GTL and GBS.

DWF (Design Web Format) is a file format associated with Autodesk and its function is mainly that of facilitating the transfer of information related to a design project. As opposed to DWG files, the proprietary format of AutoCAD, DWF are more compressed and smaller in size. They can translate complicated structures related to architectural designs or engineering into a series of sheets that are easy to view and print.

So, how to change GBL into DWF?

The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter.
