I pride myself on being meticulous when I check my designs. I can spend hours checking schematics, footprints and the proper values of components before finalizing the design. Unfortunately, the same zeal and perfectionism cannot be said with my housekeeping skills. A cleaner would have been horrified by the accumulated dust in the corners of my house.   It was particularly embarrassing when I forgot to wash my dish tray and it became the home of to a family of five lizards.

This short post will show how to work with an imported DXF drawing to define a complex board outline that includes slot and hole cutouts. We will convert the imported DXF drawing into usable data ready for designing your PCB. This was undertaken with CircuitStudio version 1.4.1 (current at the time of publishing).   The example (below) shows a 12 sided board with a number of slots and holes (cutouts), this was imported from a DXF file onto the Outline layer. Our aim is to create a PCB boar ...
