we did a prytotype in kicad and send the gerber files to our manufacturer. The problem is that our manufacturer found many drc errors because the edge of the plane (see screen) is drawn as a line segment. But the design rule between line to plane is different then line to line. So they got many drc errors becasue the line as the edge of the plane is to close to the signal line. Is there any possibility to merge the edge lines into the plane?! LineToClose|396x447
Is it really really true that they consider the lines in the gerbers and not only copper? Or is there some miscommunication somewhere? Is the “design rule” yours or theirs? I wouldn’t trust any manufacturer which poses such rules to their customers. Have they ever produced pcb’s from gerbers made with old software where copper zones are made completely with segments without polygons? Or have they used only gerbers made with some specific software and tuned their rules according to that?
Oh, I will try this. Thank you.
And about manufactoring. We try to build a package with kicad. Thats why we have those constraints. We are not able to use the kicad drc because below the die there are other constraints.
This prototye is part of a bachelor thesis where we try script a package with python. Thats why we use Kicad.
