Like the title describes, these are two things I need to know how to do in eagle. Any pointers?

Thank you.

P.S. if anyone knows a tricky way to get an image into the silk screen it would be amazing.

  • \$\begingroup\$ "Like the title" question bodies (and thank you posts, by the way) are discouraged. A better title would be "Silkscreen and copper pours for images in Eagle", and the body would explain whether you want to edit an existing package, packages currently in use, or a single PCB, whether the pour is to be applied to an image or a ground plane,etc. A title isn't long enough to contain all the information that's required for a complete question! \$\endgroup\$ Jun 7, 2011 at 22:45

To import images as silkscreen (or any layer), use File->Run... and then choose import-bmp.ulp The image needs to be in BMP format. I'd recommend using a blank board to do this until you're sure it's correct, then doing a copy/paste into your actual board or better into a library instance.

To generate copper fill, use polygons. Use the Name command to assign them to the net you need.
