For tent vias I setup Mask Limit in DRC file, this will tent all vias allowing me to set single vias to not tent. But if I want to tent only some vias, in a large board with a lot of vias this way is impraticable. So, there is a way allowing me to direcly tent some via that I select?
The simple solution is as follows.
- Set you Mask Limit and run DRC to apply it.
- Group everything on the board, then select
Changetool (button looks like a Spanner/Wrench).
- Apply that to the whole group (right-click in an empty space on the board somewhere and select
Group:Change). This will ensure that every via on the board has a stop mask aperture applied.*
- Now select
- Click on each via individually that you want to be tented. This will remove the aperture in the stop mask for that via individually.
*Note: Applying to the whole group with
Stop->On shouldn't cause you an issue. The attribute won't affect components (and crucially pads within them), so any stop mask settings within a component will remain as they were. The only thing as far as I know that responds to the
Stop attribute is vias, and only those which are not excluded by the Mask Limit in the DRC.
