I'm stuck with a problem now for a couple of days. Basically I need to design the following footprint:
The red lines should be on TOP layer, the blue ones on the INNER layer. Associated copper should be connected by vias or pins (green).
As a workaround I drew all the lines as "dead" copper and added the vias as mechanical pins but that ended up in a DRC mayhem later in the design. Is there any elegant solution to design such a footprint?
Any help would be very welcome.
Interesting foot print. I don't have a total answer, but did you try making the red padstacks with an offset drill?
What type of component is this for?
In reply to TH Designs:
Sorry for the late answer... what do you mean by offset drill? I think I didn't use that function so far.
The components is going to be a switch by applying a carbon print on the red TOP-lines which will be shortcut by a rubber button. The button has a conductive surface on the bottom.
Any further ideas anyone?
Thanks and Greetings,
In reply to nimoster:
You could make the vias into pins 1,2,3,4 etc then make the tracks as they are on the relevant layers. Once in PCB the tracks will take on the netnames from the schematic and you then connect as you would normally. Alternatively use vias and add surface mount pads at the end of the tracks to make the connection points. You will see DRC's at symbol stage but this should all roll out when a netlist is imported and takes the tracks over.
