Silkscreen on Solder Side: How? Gerber?
« on: October 20, 2015, 04:55:51 pm »
All boards I've made only have silkscreen on top. Now, I want to put silkscreen on bottom of board.

What's the proper procedure?
How do I setup the Gerber file for bottom silkscreen printing?

It't just another layer / gerber file, on the CAM output just select the Bottom Silk layer.

Don't forget you need to make sure that the bottom silk is mirrored correctly.

I was overthinking this... got it working and PCB fab house accepted the file on my 2nd retry. Thanks.
