I want to design FootPrints NFC Antenna with Kicad.
For this, I design antenna in footpints with (EditFootprints). I use a component layer for trace Antenna. For a schema, i use a component “Net Tie”.
But in PCB i have error DRC
Please to help me?

I have reopened because @Vincent is still having problems and tried to get help on gitlab (which is not the right place for user questions).
Current example from Vincent:
test_antenna_Vincent.zip (297.8 KB)
The antenna-footprint shows DRC-errors for clearance violation.
The simplest solution is to just ignore this DRC-error, the pcb-designer knows that this DRC-antenna will deliberately short the antenna connection points.
The more advanced solution is to correct the footprint and use the “net tie” feature in the footprint definition.
A corrected project can be seen here:
test_antenna_Vincent_modified.zip (24.3 KB)
differences (== corrected mistakes) to the original antenna footprint:
- there was one THT-pad completely without pad-number → renamed to PAD== “1”
- in the footprint properties → Clearance overrides and settings → set the netties to “1,2”
remaining problem: the bottom copper line must later be routed as additional extra copper track
