    How to get visible drill holes on layout?

    tvi

      Hi.

       

      I have designed PCB with PADS layout (ver. 9.5).

      I want to print layout on transparent sheet for light exposure.

      Etching and drilling will be done manually so I need visible holes on each pads, vias, etc...

      How can I do that?

       

      Vias are open in center but when flooding with gnd copper, they stay under.

      Pads are closed anyway.

      Holes are visible on design phase but not in printing (CAM).

       

      I know that I can change pad in padstack on each component but still most of time traces blocks part of the hole.

      Is there any simpler way?

       

      Thanks for your help!
