    Reg: Flash Symbol & Gerber output Reply
    Hi
    I need your help to solve below issue

    Current I am doing very old board revision activity , which used negative artwork for the plane & flash symbols for PTH.

    1) I have not worked with negative plane artwork before , connection shown in is a very thin “+” sign on plane as shown in image , I really doubt
        how exactly its connected to [ plane fully or only + connection ] . This pin carries 15A current !, I suggested to change the plane to positive artwork , due some standards
        they didn't allowed me to change . Please let me how can I increase the connection width ? I exported libraries  & checked but some issue with flash symbol .
    2) While generating Gerber files its throwing below error & unable to process

    Your suggestions are highly appreciated

    Best Regards,
    Girish Kumar

     Hi,

    You need to recreate the original flash symbol. The .ssm that is referenced in the padstack is missing. I would consider switching the new design to positive.

    Why do you recommend that? How does one go about it?
