What is the role of courtyard in kicad?

Please tell me how to use each layout

Answered in a FAQ article, What is the meaning of the layers in pcb_new and in the footprint editor? (KiCad 5 and earlier).

It keeps parts from bumping into each other.


That sounds like components with bad manners. I think that the courtyard provides room for pick and place tooling, or even a soldering iron tip?
