Silk screen drc errors

Post by solexious » Sun Oct 04, 2009 2:14 am

Hello,

When running checks on my board I have fixed all errors, apart from I get lots of errors about silk screens on top of solder areas.

I'm used to other prototyping services just not printing the silk screen there with no need to remove it from my design. Do I need to do this with you?

Also how much ish would shipping be to the uk for the 10 propaganda 10x10 boards?

Thank you

sol

thats weird that you have not gotten a reply yet. try PM'ing ESP or Albert.Miao or Seeedstudio-Fan with your question.

they must be pretty busy with the DSO Nano and rainbowuino carnival stuff.

And what did you end up finding out. Is it okay for the silk screen to overlap the soldering pads, or holes for that matter?

I am currently putting the finishing touches to a project which I am very soon going to design the prototype PCB's for. But I know from past projects, that some of the footprints I need, have parts of the silk screen running over solder pads and holes, since that doesn’t matter at the manufacturers I normally have used. So if it isn’t allowed in designs for manufacturing at SeeedStudio I might as well redesign the footprints before making or sending the PCB design, instead of getting it turned down.

So my question is: Is it okay for an silk screen line to cross a soldering pad or a hole? :?:

Best regards and thanks in advance for your answer

Hi PC_fun,
Much sorry for replying so late.
"So my question is: Is it okay for an silk screen line to cross a soldering pad or a hole?"
Yes, No problem.
The silkscreen on the pad and cross the hole will not print well.
Thanks
Albert
