We would like to use the generator to produce our solder resist masks. This seems to us what the tool is for. Unfortunately we then hit a snag; if the design has been tear dropped the tear dropping appears on the generated mask, which is not good. I logged the issue.

Question. How do i avoild getting the teardrop info included when using the mask generator to produce the solder resist mask?

Reply. There is a defect report logged against this issue but it has been closed as 'will not fix'. I will reopen the defect and link your call to that defect. There does not appear to be a workaround to the problem

My Reply. How are we supposed to use the mask generator? With this defect the tool is useless!
