I have been trying to create a customized paste layer by using the Python interface inside KiCad 6. The plan is to create some little structures on the paste layer as I would need the thin metal structures of the stencil in order hold an air filter. So not the normal application of a stencil
As far as I got, I cannot just “draw” lines on that F.Paste Layer in the PCB editor as I can do on the copper layers. Here the following works:
t = pcbnew.TRACK(pcb)
and so forth. I also tried to reassign those tracks later to the F.Paste Layer, but that also does not seem to be the way its supposed to work.
Is there something comparable that I can do on the Paste Layer? In the footprint editor I did not see a possibility to run scripts.
Does anybody know a similar project and could provide hints or links? That’d be great.
… or is it just not possible?
