How to create a circular mask keepout?

I have designed a small round 2-sided PCB with copper pour on both sides. I need to have a small area around the perimeter of the board that is not covered by soldermask so it will make an electrical connection to the cylindrical housing that it gets dropped into. If I could figure out how to keep t...

Re: 3D preview doesn't work under windows 10/64bits

Alex sent me a suggestion in a direct email that fixed the problem, so I wanted to document it here for the benefit of others. Go to "Tools->3D Preview->Patterns and Models Search", and if there's a blank line before the correct path to the 3D models, delete the blank line. All is good now. Thanks, ...

Re: V3 Pattern Editorbug under Windows 10/64bits

Hi Alex-
I did an uninstall and a fresh reinstall to c:\Diptrace. I also re-installed the 3D models to the same directory. This problem and the 3D preview error still exist.
What else can I try?

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion, but running as Administrator doesn't seem to fix it. I also tried several compatibility modes with no success.

Re: 3D preview doesn't work under windows 10/64bits

If switching graphics mode solved both issues the reason may be videodriver for Win 10. You can try to update driver for videocard. Hi Alex- I just tried switching graphics modes, but in my case it had no effect. Still hangs on "initialization", and on the second try "no 3D models found", but they ...

Re: V3 Pattern Editorbug under Windows 10/64bits

I'm seeing the same thing, but I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit. Above the erro message it says "Pattern Editor - _General.lib [Read-only]"

If I close it and re-open it, it usually works OK.
