A PCB stencil allows optimal connections between electrical connections as they place the right volume of solder paste in the right place. A PCB stencil replaces the need for hand soldering, thereby eliminating the inconsistencies created when manually applying solder.
Altium Designer is the perfect software to use for PCB stencils. The printed circuit board is designed and formed as a stack of layers. Using Altium allows you to edit and adjust for direct placement of solder paste to the surface to be soldered. This is especially important with today’s quest for smaller electronic products.
Altium Designer allows many options to edit a PCB by:
Defining the layer stack
Configuring the layer properties
Calculating solder and/or paste mask
