    "Keep Drill Holes Open" in PCB Editor 16.6 ? Reply

    Hello.

    With Orcad Layout in Post Process Settings, I used the option "Keep Drill Holes Open" to do prototypes.
    Why can I use this option with PCB Editor 16.6?

    When I generate top or bottom film in a board in the Artwork Control Form, the holes don't appear.

    Thanks.

    Your best bet would be to get the "Prototype Plotting with Open Drill Holes" app from the OrCAD Capture Marketplace, start Capture, the go to the Start Page, OrCAD Apps, Products, All and get the app. This will take care of maniplualting the colours for the layer plotting as well.
