I’m trying to figure out how to do this the right way. JLCPCB states the following for non-plated slots in it’s capabilities page:
The minimum Non-Plated Slot Width is 1.0mm, please draw the slot outline in the mechanical layer(GML or GKO)
Am I right to interpret this as drawing slots in the “edge.cuts” layer? Doing so generates what appear to be right gerbers, but JLCPCB is unable to detect the outline of the PCB (and thus it’s size) if there is anything else than the outer layer in “edge.cuts”. (manufacturing ends up working with clarifications, but I’d like to avoid this in production runs)
So my question is, is this the right way to generate slots? what alternative ways could I use to create slots that may render better results?
Couldn’t find much info in the docs, thou I could be looking in the wrong place. I know for a fact that JLCPCB can correctly detect edges for boards with slots created in altium and eagle. Hopefully this makes sense, I’m a beginner with KiCad.
