I hereby certify that I am not simply asking someone else to design a footprint for me.
This is an auto-generated message that is in place on the “footprints” section of the KiCad.info forum. If I remove it and ask for a footprint to be designed anyway, I understand that I will be subject to forum members telling me to go design my own footprint or referring me to a 3rd party footprint site.
Hi all, I’m working on a footprint for an RF connector on a 4 layer board. I have done FEM simulations to design the footprint and now I’m trying to implement it in KiCAD. The footprint should look like this:
That is, it should have a centre via with a pad on top and then clearance rings around in all layers. The clearance rings should have the same radius in all layers. However, I do not manage to do this in KiCAD. I cannot do anything on the inner layers in the footprint, so I have done this by filling a zone in the layout. However, it does not with the same radius in all layer, and I cannot find any setting to get this. Any suggestions? This is how it looks now:
That is, the top-layer looks correct (from pads in the footprint) but the first inner layer fills too close to the via. How can I change this?
