Export N/C Drill files for Blind Vias - Odd behavior

#1 Post by mbelectronicdesign » 08 May 2020, 11:28

Vn 3.3.1.3

It's a 10 layer design and, apart from 1,000s of through-plated vias, there are plated blind vias that go 1-3 and 3-10.

When I File > Export > N/C Drill and select plated holes, I get the via files I expected for the blind vias but, when I select non-plated holes I get the normal non plated through holes in their own file but I also get files of the same names, 1-3.drl and 3-10.drl, but they seem to contain nothing. Is this a bug? Are they there for a reason?

FYI, I append _Plated and _NonPlated to my .drl file names.

Thanks,

Ted
