Solder mask

Why does solder mask not show up in the Layers menu.

  • So far in DEX Solder Mask is not something you can fiddle with freely like other layers. You can't add things like text on this layer (I supose you can if you create the text as a part) and to do any special modifications you must edit the solder mask by editing the pads or parts.

    If a pad is there then it needs a hole in the solder mask.
    Pads with no holes in solder-mask don't make sense.

  • Yes it does make sense if you want to get the Signal from the top layer to the bottom layer and then isolate the pad on the bottom layer from the metal enclosure that it is being mounted to.

  • Don't use TPH pad.
    Why is the pcb pressed up against the metal box?
    Any TPH pins will also touch the box.


    See other topic.

    Use a insulated spacer e.g. as in TO3 transistors.
