I have tried to search for this, but I can't seem to find it.

Is there a way to create a SMD stencil gerber (or other format) that only has the SMD parts?
If I was going to have a stencil made, I don't want the thru hole parts to get paste....

I was thinking a work around would be to make custom parts in the pattern editor, but then I couldn't figure out how to leave the mask off a pad and I figured it would be come a nightmare to manage the edits/updates to make it work seamlessly.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
W

In the PCB Layout editor select File > Export > Gerber... and enable the "[X] Paste Mask for SMT Pads Only" option.
