Custom shapes for the solder mask blocker


That’s so weird I was just wondering about trying just that. Will let you know if it works!


Even when I rotated the copper pad on the right side 180 deg. it didn’t work… The right side of the blocker/copper has to be touching the board… weird!


It’s a go! Have and a excellent day and thank you for making these files!


Can I get a more n00b-friendly explanation for how this works?

I’d like to import a custom shape (like a logo) that blocks out the soldermask.


Hi Steelgoose,

Can you give a quick rundown of the steps you used to create a custom solder mask keep-out shape? I would like to do more complex shapes.

Thank you,
