How to make a through hole pad other than circular shape in Eagle?
I need an elongated circle / elliptical sort of pad. This is the best I could achieve:
This is what I did:
1) Made polygons on Pad layer, tStop layer and bStop layer.
2) Made a cutout polygon on Dimensions layer.
However I was unable to connect a pin to this while making the device. So, I added 4 pads so that their drill overlapped exactly with the area I wanted to be removed from my elongated pad. (I needed 1 pin to be connected to this but I added 4 pads so that their drills will ensure that whole central area gets removed even in case fab house doesn't make the cutout on dimension layer.)
I'm still not sure this will work though. Is there any better way to make a pad with elongated / square / random shaped drill?
