Schema for Gerber Job File: great help for developers

Ucamco has released a new Gerber Job Format specification. It includes a schema that provides very useful support for Gerber Job Format software developers.

The schema provides a precise definition of what can and cannot be inside a Gerber Job File. It can be used programmatically to check a Gerber Job File for errors.

Created for developers
It’s mostly intended for use by developers who want to read or write Gerber Job Files in their system.

How it works
Any JSON schema reader that can parse a draft-07 schema can be used to read it and then further used to check Gerber Job Files against it for errors.


Read the full specification here. The schema is on pages 19-26.

The schema is available for download here
