I have an 8-layer board that uses both blind and buried vias, along with micro-vias on the outer layers, such that a via from layer 1 to layer 3 is actually composed of a stack: a micro-via from 1 to 2 and a via from 2 to 3. After supplying the standard drill gerbers (1-3 drill, 1-2 drill, 2-3 drill, among others) to my board manufacturer, they are requesting that the 1-3 drill pattern be included in both the 1-2 and 2-3 drill gerber files.

My first thought was to just merge the 1-3 drill gerber with the 1-2 drill gerber and merge the 1-3 drill gerber with the 2-3 drill gerber outside of DIPTrace. Is there a clever way to do this with DIPTrace, e.g. export the drill symbol gerber of layers 1-2 along with layers 1-3?

Note: All vias in my design share the same annular ring geometries.

Hi Andrew,

It seems there is no more clever way to do what you need. Replacing 1-3 vias to 1-2 and 2-3 vias in PCB Layout is more time consuming than copy/paste holes in drill files.
