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.
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.
