is there a complete list of layer names to use when designing components in a vector package (using inkscape here).
have tried google and there doesn’t seem to be an actually complete guide to doing this.
managed to create a component that works in breadboard and schematic view, got something that physically puts pads where I want them for PCB, but only then allows connections to the centre of the component - and can’t find how to define drill holes and locations, or stuff like slots, plated and un-plated.
also is there a standard set of colours for stuff like silk screen items. I’ve tried looking at the template items but seem to have a few issues, e.g. copy & paste causes all sorts of problems (copy a pad and the original pad is fine the copy looks like an 8 bit image from the 80’s.
worked around that one but I’ll be dipped in sugar if I can work out how to specify a dill hole.
trying to make elliptical pads due to component pin spacing, I guess this is a case of define the ellipse then “somehow” drill a hole though it? presumably by drawing a circle somewhere?
