Setting the width to 0 will create a non plated through hole rather than a pad which I expect isn’t what you want. Steelgoose’s answer to me in
[New options for small signal diodes and a fix for the 1n4001 in breadboard]
“There is a way to set the drill hole size to 0.035” in Inkscape: First, open the dialog box
"Fill and Stroke", and click the tab “Stroke style”, set the units to Inches and width to
0.020". Now go the the tool bar and set the units to inches and the width and height to
0.075". Shazam!.. The outside diameter of the circle including the stroke-width minus the
stroke-width x 2… leaves you the inside of the circle (drill size). CorelDraw is a little
different, the toolbar dimensions are the actual dimensions of the circle and the
stroke-width is in a separate window…"
works for me as long as the translates aren’t too deep (and I’m working on a way of getting rid of the damn translates).
(edit:) If you don’t already have an external gerber viewer you may want to grab a copy of the Geda one from
I was making the invalid assumption that because PCB view looked fine my footprints were correct. gerbv demonstrated that I was mistaken, and I’m now working on correcting the parts I have created and posted … To use it in Fritzing with your pcb loaded do:
then pick a directory and click select folder and it will write the gerbers for your board there.
You can then see what Fritzing really produced from your footprints (some of mine look very different (and wrong) there while looking fine in Fritzing.
