Everyone who ever been through a component-level motherboard repair is familiar with a boardview software. And everyone knows it sucks.
Meet NeoBoardView, the only non-crap tool capable of viewing BRD and BDV 'board view' files.
Now you can have your cake, and eat it, too!
See how it works with Apple boardviews:
And Lenovo's are fine too:
NeoBoardView can also guess component shapes:
Board view files don't contain information that could help deducing component shapes. All shapes are defined by pins — that's the way board views have been designed.
Starting from version 0.2.3, NeoBoardView can guess shapes heuristically (press G to switch between default and guessed shapes).
Yes! Some shortcuts are similar to Landrex TastLink, which you are probably familiar with.
Keep in mind that you can navigate using the mouse: hold and drag with the left mouse button to move around the board and use mouse wheel to zoom.
