Summary

This command is used to place a Drill Table object onto the active document. A drill table (also known as a drill drawing table or a drill drawing legend) is a standard element required for manufacture of a Printed Circuit Board. The drill table lists the size and number of holes for each drill used on the board. Each drill size can be represented by a symbol, a letter or the actual hole size. When a drill drawing is generated for the board, each actual drill site is marked by a symbol. The drill table updates in real time, i.e. as hole-containing objects such as pads and vias are placed or removed from the PCB design, the table updates.

For detailed information about this object type, see Drill Table.

Access

This command is accessed from the PCB Editor by choosing the Place » Drill Table command from the main menus.

Note that the drill table must be placed on the Drill Drawing layer. It will be automatically placed on the Drill Drawing layer, even if this is not the currently active layer.

Use

After launching the command, a drill table will appear attached to the cursor. Position the table in a suitable location outside the board then click or press Enter to place it.

At any time during placement, press the Tab key to access the Properties panel, from where properties for the drill table can be changed on-the-fly. Pressing Tab pauses placement, allowing you to interact with the panel (or other area of the software) directly. To resume, click the pause symbol that appears over the workspace.

While attributes can be modified during placement (Tab to bring up the Properties panel), keep in mind that these will become the default settings for further placement unless the Permanent option on the PCB Editor – Defaults page of the Preferences dialog is enabled. When this option is enabled, changes made will affect only the object being placed and subsequent objects placed during the same placement session.
