    Solder Mask Swelling at the .brd level Reply

    Hello,

           Is it possible to swell the soldermask of a design at the .brd level? Or do I have to edit all the padstacks to accomplish this?  To date we have delivered boards to fab houses 1 to 1 (pad to mask).  Moving forward a particular fabrication house has requested this be done prior to generating artwork.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Clint

    Hi Clint

    Yes this can be done using an app from OrCAD Capture Marketplace, look at the link below - it has description, pictures and movie that shows this.

    Remember to change your artwork film to contain the user defined mask instead of the original mask subclasses 

    best regards

    Hi Ole,

    While registering I got the message that the support does not exists in the current country.

    Please advice on how to download this app.

    Regards,

    Pawan
