Title: FlexBV BoardViewer + PDF coupling now supports Eagle / KiCAD / Other exports
Post by: Inflex on April 08, 2019, 04:17:43 pm
A new update of FlexBV is being launched.

In addition to the base board viewer + PDF coupling to make for faster/easier cross referencing/repairs, there are now additional formats imported;

ODB / OrCAD Layout v2 (simplified)
FAB / Fabmaster
HYP / HyperLynx
CAD / GenCAD

Latest beta versions are now in public release for those with existing licences - http://pldaniels.com/flexbv (http://pldaniels.com/flexbv)

A good number of improvements over the existing stable,including the following;

* Butterfly view mode (can be turned off too)
* Faster rendering, maintain 60fps easily without chewing your CPU to death
* PDF search system greatly improved, with in-page or per-page stepping forwards/backwards.
* User-customisable keyboard actions
* PCB themes (easy to create your own too)
* Fabmaster, GenCAD and HyperLynx file formats now readable, great for people with Eagle/KiCAD/Altium/OrCAD
