What's new in Cuprum 1.6

Cuprum 1.6 brings some highly requested features such as selection and inspection of objects and highlighting of connected copper.

Better file functions

The file function of a layer (when not suplied by Gerber X2 attributes) is now also determined from the filename instead of just the extension, resulting in more file functions that are configured automatically.

Frames management

Frames can now be managed from the preferences window, allowing you to add, remove and preview your installed frames.

Highlight copper

The new highlight copper command allows you to select a copper object, and Cuprum will highlight all copper that’s connected to it.

Object inspector

Selection of objects shows their properties in the new object inspector.


Features

Gerber X2 support

Cuprum is the first Gerber viewer for Mac with full Gerber X2 support, including verification of the MD5 checksum. Using the layer and object inspector all X2 attributes can be examined.

Highlight copper

The new highlight copper command allows you to select a copper object, and Cuprum will highlight all copper that’s connected to it.

Highlight copper

This works across all layers and dimming intensity can be varied.


Measurement tool

With the measurement tool you can measure distance in both dimensions, x and y, in the unit of your choice.

Using the snap functionality your measurements are exact.

Multi page print jobs

Multi-page print jobs allow you to make a full documentation set with ease.

Frames can be included on the printout. Special strings in the frame are replaced with data from the print job, such as page counter, date and titles.

Print job settings can be stored and recalled.

Navigation support

Intuitive navigation, no matter what input device you use.

Full zooming and navigation of the Gerber image with an intuitive interface.

You can use a trackpad, magic mouse, normal mouse or pen tablet. Even 3D mice from 3DConnexion are supported!

Object inspector

Selection of objects shows their properties in the new object inspector.

Object selection and inspection

Various tools are available for selection such as ‘Inside rectangle’, ‘Crossing line’ as well as ‘Connected Copper’.

From the object inspector, related objects can be selected by clicking the arrow button. Such as selecting all objects created with the same D-code aperture. For Gerber X2 files, selection is also possible based on Componet, Pin and Net information, if supplied by the file.


QuickLook

With the QuickLook plugin you can preview your files in Finder and other applications.

Single layer mode

Need to focus on a specific layer? In single layer mode you can dim other layers or turn them off completely, so the layer of interest stands out. Dimmed layers can be drawn in color, grayscale or monochrome (all the same shade of gray).

Snapping

Advanced snap support with haptic feedback on Force Trackpads.

‘Object’ and ‘Boundary’ snap modes allow precise measurements when the distance to measure doesn’t start or end at an endpoint.

Snap


Transparent viewing

Find hidden copper features, such as vias in copper regions.

You can choose to view everything transparent or only the regions (copper pours).

Transparent view mode


Configurable grid

Setup a grid with custom major and minor divisions.

Grid Configuration

Excellon support

Import your drill files just as easily as your Gerber files.

And when Cuprum detects a mismatch between the scale of your Excellon data en gerber data, it wil try to make the Excellon data fit.

Metal engine

Cuprum uses Metal for drawing, resulting in a smooth zoom and scroll experience.

Metal icon

An OpenGL fallback is provided for older hardware (Mac’s from before 2012) [1].

Multilayer support

View multiple layers (Gerber files) at once.

The color of each layer is determined by the file function of the layer (Copper, Legend, etc).

Customize the colors of your layers and export them for your colleagues. Or get a head start by importing the colors from them.
