Text in Copper Zone


#41

Awesome! Glad it worked for you!


#42

Any chance the layer could be simply edited from F.Cu to “Keepout area” in the file? Or is this impossible?


#43

Is it possible to do the ‘inverted copper’ as shown? image

Not directly, but the expanded Gerber standard supports black and white (positive/negative) plotting, so you could plot the text on a separate layers and then instruct the board fab to add as negative to the coppers, or you could manually edit/append the copper Gerber files with the negative header + text.

Doing this, the user (of course) needs to take care to ensure the negative text does not cross any traces :slight_smile:

Not sure how to do this. Does anyone know what layers/objects in KiCAD would create this?
