Beta 3.9.4 Feedback - Slots

1. Slots appear to work well. 2. Consider changing the hole color from #000000 to #111111 now that it is possible to have slots without any border indicators. Without this, I could not find my NPTH slots since they have no border. 3. If I create a 75mil diameter hole and a 75mil diameter slot, the hole appears narrower than the slot. ![Hole vs Slot][1] 4. Angled slots were hard to create until I saw that the measurement tool gave angles. 5. I learned that if I want my NPTH slots to work well with copper pours, I needed to set the length and width of the "pad" to be equal to the size of the hole. Pad H = 1, Pad W = 1 ![NPTH vs Copper Pour 1][2] Pad H = Slot H, Pad W = Slot W ![NPTH vs Copper Pour 2][3] **I can't wait for this to be a full feature!** [1]: http://i.imgur.com/W3CiVyu.png?1 [2]: http://i.imgur.com/kRHKcyy.png [3]: http://i.imgur.com/Z36nwiV.png

If you just modify the PCB, the beta can be used for product(The compoents and lots of others functions are under test). or just wait for 2 weeks . 1. thanks 2. OK, We will use #111111 as default holes. 3. The hole and solt are the same size, just the hole's white edge are cover some things. >I learned that if I want my NPTH slots to work well with copper pours, I needed to set the length and width of the "pad" to be equal to the size of the hole. I can't understand it very well, try to answer for pads, you can set the pads as NPTH, but you need to remark this when you order. that you need which to be NPTH holes, because in our PCB fab flow, if the holes have copper connect with them, they will be convert PTH. ![enter image description here][1] 4. measurement tool gave angles. Yes, it is on our TODO list. Thanks for your time. We will come from holiday, the release version will be online soon. [1]: /editor/20161006/57f5b606030a0.png

Just get feedback for the coders, it seems we support angle for measure, is it you need? the hotkey is M to use this ![enter image description here][1] [1]: /editor/20161006/57f5b8a3df02c.png

> If you just modify the PCB, the beta can be used for product(The compoents and lots of others functions are under test). or just wait for 2 weeks . I will wait since I need to be able to save my project. > OK, We will use #111111 as default holes. For reference, the holes shown in my pictures were #333333. Maybe #222222 would work, too. > The hole and solt are the same size, just the hole's white edge are cover some things. Good to know! Thank you! > I can't understand it very well, try to answer for pads, you can set the pads as NPTH, but you need to remark this when you order. that you need which to be NPTH holes, because in our PCB fab flow, if the holes have copper connect with them, they will be convert PTH. Let me rephrase my original comment. If I create a NPTH slot, I have to make the pad equal to the size of the hole or else the copper pour algorithm will not create a keepout region around the hole. Regarding your PCB fab flow comments... This has me worried. I had planned on creating this slotted component... ![Slotted recessed component][1] Will this end up being converted to a PTH since I have the 6x copper pads adjacent to the PCB? > Just get feedback for the coders, it seems we support angle for measure, is it you need? the hotkey is M to use this Yes and I was happy to see it. It saved me from trigonometry! [1]: http://i.imgur.com/iNy9JHS.png

After we release 3.9.4, if your pads are NPTH, no need to worry, we will fab them as NPTH, it is better to add a remark at the same time when you order. After the new versions, 1. All the HOLES will be NPTH. 2. All NPTH pads will be NPTH if no copper adjacent( should not connect with) 3. If there are copper adjacent the NPTH holes, if you should make sure there are NPTH, you need to add a remark when order. the default will convert the NPTH to PTH by our software, why need to convert, because 80% case, the users needs PTH holes at that. ![enter image description here][1] [1]: /editor/20161006/57f5c82eaf34c.png

I went ahead and ordered some coupons with 3.9.4. https://easyeda.com/editor#id=4piusL3ue I didn't end up using a slot for this particular footrpint. I used a NPTH keepout though. I did notice some errors with holes and the photo view, though... The designated holes only appear on the bottom side in the photo view, but the NPTH keepout hole appears fine. Also, the gerber view does not show that the NPTH keepout is empty.

Err... 3.9.3. And I wish I could go back and edit these posts...

Hi, The V3.8 can't open V3.9 files. Please let me know if you need any other help. You can order via V3.9 directly.
