What is a GBS file?

Data file created by CAD Printed Circuit Board (PCB) programs like Altium Designer; contains bottom-side solder mask data for boards with multiple layers; includes information about all the pads that need soldering to prevent solder bridging of traces and pads during production; similar to the .GTS file extension.

More Information

The name of the GBS file is derived from the name of your PCB. Therefore, if your PCB is called "MyProject," the file will be called MyProject.gbs.

Gerber format files, like GBS, are stored in RS-274X format and act similar to .PDF files. They're an exported version of the PCB layout and are meant to be viewed and referenced but not edited. They're utilized by PCB manufacturing machines to designate electrical connections between components with pads and tracks.

NOTE: The GBS format was originally developed by Gerber Systems but is now maintained by Ucamco.

OtterUI is a video game UI development toolkit that allows developers to create navigable menus and other animated scenes. These scenes are saved in GBS files, which a game then references and loads to show scenes to players.

When using OtterUI to create a set of menus or scenes for their video game, developers first create a new project (.GGP file) in OtterUI Editor, a GUI editor that comes bundled with OtterUI. Then, developers begin adding and editing scenes by right-clicking in OtterUI Editor's Project window and selecting Add. Each scene created within OtterUI Editor is associated with a project file.

How do I open a GBS file?

You can open a GBS file in OtterUI Editor (Windows) by opening the OtterUI project (GGP file) the GBS file is associated with. Typically, GGP files are stored in the C:/Program Files (x86)/Aonyx Software/OtterUI Editor directory.
