Default paste shrink is to large, make it 0.03mm by default

#1 Post by Tony Philipsson » 04 Mar 2017, 14:58

Why would you Novarm set the default that renders tsop pins like hairline thick?

oshstencils.com now have to warn all diptrace users to resave the paste file.
See picture below
So 0.03mm seems like a good number.

I actually would like 10% settings instead, as 0.03mm on large pad is nothing and I have to go in and individually change paste shrink to 0.6mm in a qfn center pad
,as I don't feel to window it, though that should also be a option in diptrace.

P.S and solder mask swell should by default be 0.08mm

+1000

I use to set 0,05mm, with no problems with metal stencils.
With the plastic ones of OSH I had no problems either even with standard 0,5mm pitch IC's.
