I want to give cutout in pcb but i don't know.
which are the steps to give cutout?
Your question is incomplete . what type of cut out u want ? where u want ?
> You can create NPTH slots , holes ...of required dimension in padstack & create footprint for the same , then you can manually place that part in board where u want the cut out, it will reflect in your .drl or .rou file during drill file generation.
> If it is a irregular shape cut out manually draw it using suitable class & provide the information about this cut out in drill drawing artwork.Put all type keepout in the cut out region to avoid copper falling in this region [rout keepout /all. package keepout/all, viakeepout/all]
>If the cut outs are at the board edge controll it by board outline .
Not sure whether above line may help you requirement
In reply to girish:
thank you for your kind reply.
I want to give cut out on edge for irregular pcb shape and i want to know how pcb shape can be made and which are the steps?
In reply to pcbnagaraj:
I need to cutout a PCB in a different way: Actually I need to cutout a small piece of the PCB in the BRD file, including parts of all the layers (planes, traces and pads). But I´m not interested in fabricating it, I just need to save this kind of "PCB biopsy" in another BRD file.Any idea how to do this?
Thank you in advance,
In reply to Jurbrian:
You can do this. There are skill files available to "cut" through multiple layers so the copper can be separated from other copper first. Then you can use "File->Export->Subdrawing" and follow the prompts. You can then import the subdrawing into another board with identical stackup. You do not have to "cut" first if you want all of the attached copper to export/import into the new board...just a useful step to know about.
Also, there are 3rd party tools such as http://www.dalTools.com that can help with this.
