    Need a shorted piepad. Define a "draw short" layer? Reply
    Would like to add an etch layer at the footprint level that adds two layers(side A and B) for shorting etch.

    Like the idea of a separate gerber layer that draws the short after fabricators verify a clean netlist/artwork check first.

    EMA provided the answer.  Tried adding a new subclass to ETCH, which isn't allowed.  PACKAGE_GEOMETRY worked.

    Only other trick was adding "_top" and "_bottom" subclasses to the symbol to support mirroring the Line object to the opposite side with the part.
