Successfully placed the table separation slots.


#1

In using Kicad, anyone successfully placed board separation slits for making two separate circuits on the same board outline that can be snapped apart after production?.
Evidently there is a way in Kicad but so far have not found it.

I don’t think there is a way natively in KiCad. KiCad is really for creating a single board from a single schematic. Doing any more than that is a bit of a kludge. That said, someone here on the forum has published a stand-alone tool to add tabs with mouse-bytes. See this thread:

Hope this helps.

Like this?

What you’re looking for is called a panel, the act of placing the boards into the panel is called panelization and I’ve created a tool that makes it really easy to manage with kicad boards.

If what you want is v-scoring, which leaves nastier board edges, then all you need to do is to leave enough space between the boards and then tell the board house to v-score along lines drawn in a separate gerber layer.
