V4Beta3 Paste Mask Shrink in Pattern Generator

#1 Post by MarkEd » 06 May 2020, 06:02

Hi

I have problem with Custom Paste Mask Shrink in Pattern Generator.

When Shrink is set to 0, Paste Mask is much smaller than Pad.

When Shrink is set to 0,001, Paste Mask is slightly smaller than Pad.

PS. When typing Custom Paste Mask Shrink like: 0,000 and then I want to insert the fourth number after the comma, zero appears.

This question is not related to Pattern Generator.
This is display option for paste mask in Pattern Editor.

Open context menu of pad - Mask/Paste Settings.
You will see that Top Paste Mask = Common State.
"Common State" is value from PCB Layout - Export Gerber - Paste Mask Shrink.
So, Paste Mask will be show by Common State Value.

In this case, Custom Paste Mask Shrink field is specified.
Therefore, Paste Mask will be show by Custom Value.
