99SE how to close the paste mask over a pad (fiducial)?
« on: June 29, 2014, 12:39:21 pm »
I can't for the life of me find how to close the *paste* mask over a pad so the finished pad is not tinned during manufacture.

Checking the pad properties there is an (advanced) option for paste mask "override". I've tried various values including negative values and it seems to have no effect on the paste mask around the pad.

Any help please?

Thanks.

I'm not 100% certain but I think putting a -ve value in the paste override value works.

The pcb view does not change but a preview print of the paste mask shows the "hole" disappear.

Double click pad. Set paste opening to negative value of pad diameter.
