Does anyone know of a relatively inexpensive and easy to use program to edit stencil gerbers? I have been using CAMtastic 2000 designers edition for years and it worked perfectly however I can not get it to run on win 10. Thank you

Virtual machine software like Oracle Virtual Box or that one that comes with KiCAD, there are others on GitHub

I use Viewmate, I cant compare it to anything else but it gets the job done.

GC CAM or Circuit CAM. Circuit CAM have been designed for stencil redesigning. Easy to use for.As I heard FAB3000 can be a good option.

I have never heard of editing gerbers with CircuitCam, and don't see any menu options that might lead me towards that kind of functionality.

Can you share a simplified description of the process (for example, just the initial menu item selections once the gerbers have been imported would be very helpful), please?

Edited to add, I suspect that this might be something we don't have a license for but it would be good to know more about regardless.

Thanks!

I too was confused Steve, until I followed the link he had posted. It seems there is another CircuitCAM software. I'm very surprised there is not copyright infringment.

Wow! You are right.

I guess that depending on where you come from and what your value system is, anything is possible...?
