Modify stencil - include aperture

I am attempting to create a footprint for Wurth 7466103 - https://docs.rs-online.com/f3e1/0900766b8133516f.pdf

simple enough NPTH with large copper. But how to manage the stensil? any suggestions

Keep out zone on the paste layer?

Take a look at the Mounting_Wuerth standard lib. Has similar paste layouts, created using custom pads.
(Scripts at https://github.com/pointhi/kicad-footprint-generator/tree/master/scripts/Mounting_Hardware might be of use, too)

Well ill be :slight_smile:
It took a bit to get around what each YAML entry means but I think I have it - I have submitted some updates for SOIC parts but not like this. once I get this job finished ill submit these and a few more powerTap parts
