PCB Shape Modification - removing PCB area
« on: August 08, 2022, 05:46:15 pm »
Hey all - I have an already placed and routed PCB that has a couple unused spurs - they were in the original shape stepfile from the ME - that are unneeded, no etch/components.  I would like to truncate them but am having difficulty removing that part (or any part, tbh) of the shape.  Can somebody point me toward a tutorial or give me a clue on how to do this?  I've been poking at this for hours, and it's not the first time.

You need to delimit the area you want to use with some traces x, and then select the traces that soround the board--> go to Desing-->Board Shape-->Define from selected objects.
