Summary

The solder mask expansion distance for pads and vias can be determined either by relevant Solder Mask Expansion design rules, or manually, by defining an expansion value as part of the pad's/via's properties. The latter requires that the pad's/via's Solder Mask Override property be enabled. This function returns pad and via objects whose Solder Mask Override property complies with the Query.

Syntax

SolderMaskOverride : Boolean_String

Boolean_String must be either 'True' or 'False'.

Example Usage

SolderMaskOverride = 'True'
Returns all pad and via objects whose Solder Mask Override property is enabled.

SolderMaskOverride = 'False'
Returns all pad and via objects whose Solder Mask Override property is disabled.

SolderMaskOverride <> 'True'
Not (SolderMaskOverride = 'True')
Returns all objects except pad and via objects whose Solder Mask Override property is enabled.

SolderMaskOverride <> 'False'
Not (SolderMaskOverride = 'False')
Returns all objects except pad and via objects whose Solder Mask Override property is disabled.

Tips

  1. The Solder Mask Override property is only defined for pad and via objects.
