The Oversize Option

Template layers of printed curcuit boards have to represent huge amounts of detailed information. It is therefore not surprising that they often are not defined sufficiently large. In these cases the PCB supplier has to enlarge each and every object on all template layers, a tremendous task which is greatly simplified through the use of PCB-Investigators "Generate Oversize".

The Oversize Options offer two possibilities to enlarge or shrink template layers: one is through fixed values the other through percentage which both can be applied to any number of objects like surfaces, lines and arcs. It is also possible to work on multiple levels simultaneously.

Please be advised that there is a high possibility of holes, indentations and similar to literally grow together when using enlarge for several times as the spaces get smaller with every increase until they disappear completely (cf. image 4 below).
