What defines the area included in a Gerber plot? In other systems, you can define the coordinates of the extents of the plot file. Is there a way to do this in KiCad?
I have a board that I do not yet know the final mechanical dimensions. I want to plot only a portion of this for testing purposes. I don’t need the sheet reference (no frame/title block).
Fab shops typically want a separate plot of the board outline - the edge cuts layer. They don’t want this on other layers.
I drew an edge cuts outline just around the area I want to plot. I tried to do a block copy of this area - alt + left mouse, but where does the copy go? Not to the clipboard, apparently. I tried to create a new project with just this portion of the board included, but that didn’t work. The block operation dialog never appeared.
Lots of design years and lots of systems under my belt, but sometimes KiCad is pretty strange in the way it does things. Thanks for any help.
