I need a filled zone for a net which is surrounded by another filled zone connected to a different net. If I create and fill a zone for the outer area with a keepout for the inner zone, then attempt to define the inner zone, DRC complains that the “start point is inside or too close (to) an other()area”. Inside? Yes!
I know the usual application for filled zones is for one power plane per layer board but I’m trying to produce a metal-clad PCB single layer design. Its also the kind of thing that would be required for isolation style routing for reproducing two-layer SMPS designs I often see in app. notes.
Is there a Kicad technique I haven’t discovered yet?
