Re: How do I add a non signal layer to a footprint pattern?

@Alex:
This feature would be very welcome!

Re: Shunt resistorwith Kelvin connection

Just tried it .. Unfortunately It didn't work as intended: a) DRC has problems calculating the distance between different pads. I made distances between pads at least 200um however diptrace seems to measure other values b) DRC treats those duplicated pads not as same-net in regards to DRC but report...

Shunt resistorwith Kelvin connection

I currently struggle to define a pattern for a current shunt with kelvin connections (1206 size) I tried two different approaches - both of which have their drawbacks: a) define a very small pad and add overlapping shapes to define those irregular pad shapes. This works in principle but results in m...
