I want to make a symbol for a bus bar that I will use for an upcoming project. Will the following approach work?
What I want to make is a copper strip approx 6.5" long x 0.5" wide that includes 96, 0.040" dia plated holes on a 0.1" x 0.2" spacing grid.
The copper is to be on each layer (for now assume 6 layers) and the holes are to be plated thru and flooded to each layer.
In the symbol editor, I have made the array of holes and put a static solid filled shape around them on each layer. Each hole shows a "pad to shape" DRC which I would expect at this point. When I bring this symbol into the board and edit the shape to attach it to the net, will these DRC's go away? I woud expect to have to assign the net to each layer shape... Correct?
Will this approach work, or am I dreaming......................
