What is a GBR file?

A GBR file contains printed circuit board (PCB) design data in Gerber format, which is an industry-standard file format supported by many PCB design systems. It contains instructions for drilling and milling the board and includes information about the board's electrical connections. GBR files are commonly used by PCB professionals to securely exchange image, drill, and rout data from design software to manufacturing machines.

More Information

The Gerber format is simple and compact, storing data that precisely describes a 2D image of a PCB and metadata required for the fabrication of a PCB. The GBR format was originally developed by Gerber Systems but is now maintained by Ucamco.
