Solder Mask

Postby REPH61 » Mon Jan 26, 2015 12:03 pm

If I were to place the reference designator in copper, is it possible to prevent solder mask from covering it?
So as to be easier to see?

Yes, you can create solder mask opening by adding a filled polygon on the solder mask layer. Please note that solder mask layer is in negative polarity, so anything you draw on that layer, will have no solder mask.

Ok, should it show up in the 3D model?
