i made the circuit schematics , then i chose the footprints … laid out all the footprints…
as i want to make pcb himself so from plot i choose the pdf format conversion… and take print out of that pdf…now i can etch the circuit…
the problem i am facing is that the pad size which is too small for drill machine… how can i enhance or extrude it to some extent…
The best option would be to create your own footprints with larger pads.
For that simply open the currently used footprint in the footprint editor. Right click on the pads -> properties and edit the drill size as well as pad size. (Choose the drill you want to use)
Save this new footprint into your own lib.
Open the schematic, change the footprint association and re export the netlist.
Import the netlist into pcb new.
You can cheat and edit the pad properties from within pcb_new directly. I would not recommend this because you might run into problems later on.
Be aware that using a larger drill then specified in the datasheet might make soldering harder.
It might also mean you need to redo a lot of traces because they are now too close to the resized pads.
