The Line-Arc Primitives From Board Shape dialog


The Line-Arc Primitives From Board Shape dialog allows you to create Line and Arc primitives that outline the board shape.


This dialog can be accessed by selecting Design » Board Shape » Create Primitives From Board Shape from the main menus.


  • Width - specify the width of the generated Line/Arc primitives.
  • Layer - choose a layer from drop-down list for the generated Line/Arc primitives.
    • Include Cutouts - enable to include cutouts when generating outline primitives.
    • Include layer stack regions - enable to include layer stack regions when generating outline primitives. A layer stack region is a user-defined area of a PCB that can have a unique layer stack assigned to it. A board can be split into multiple regions with each region assigned an individual layer stack arrangement. The layer stackups (defined in the Layer Stack Manager) can be configured to cater for both rigid and flexible regions of the board, facilitating rigid-flex PCB design. Layer stack regions can be browsed through the PCB panel configured in Layer Stack Regions mode.
    • Route Tool Outline - the default behavior is to place the outline primitives so that their centerline is on the edge of the board shape. When this option is enabled the line/arc objects are instead placed so their edge touches the edge of the board shape and the edge of the cutout, as required for a route (rout) tool outline.
    • Delete Existing Non-Net Lines/Arcs On Layer - enable to delete existing Lines/Arcs that are not associated with a specific net on the selected layer.
