Not to confuse...

The name "Gent" alludes to the city of that name, where the company that created the Gerber RS-274X format was located. There is another SourceForge project, with the Unix name of "gent" (with no connection to this project), so this project was named "qtgent" (because it is a Qt-based GUI app) to avoid confusion.


Project Information

About this project:

This is the gent project ("qtgent").

This project started on on 2010-02-24, to produce a simple end-user program to create a picture of a printed circuit board (PCB) described by a text file in Gerber RS-274X format. This format is a much-used standard for exchanging PCB designs, so I hope it will fill a need.
