Re: Shape Router Setup

That should work, it might also be that via styles could play a role, we know laser drills are now at .07mm and we know that a via in a pad doesn't need a ring, each has a property. The via in a pad should enforce positional awareness that would be a board shop issue, how close to the edge of a pad ...

Re: Shape Router Setup

Your suggestion would work on top or bottom so if you had a net/pad on the top that was routed on an inner layer and had a net/pad on the bottom it should work. Where do we put information about fan out distance, the distance from the pad to the via? Without that information the router could/would p...

Re: Drill file missing holes

With three drill files it doesn't want to work; Import only imports gerber then asks for 1 drill file. To add the other two files I had to import a layer since you can't tell it to import a drill file, since the system will not allow me to go forward with the import without adding a layer (convert t...
