New Features

Remove Material
This function creates an optimized path to remove an area of material (for example removing material for a wave pallet). The function takes a selected area (including polygon areas) and calculates a path to cover the selected area with the minimum number of tool raises.

By default the created path is placed on a new Hole/Rout layer and uses the tool number selected from the existing tool table.

The path is calculated to minimize the number of ‘tool up’ transitions while covering the maximum selected area. The path will not cover areas where the specified tool diameter will not fit within the selected area.

Auto Fix for Solderpaste pad spacing violations.
The option to AutoFix (by an equal pad shave approach) has been added to the SolderPaste Pad/Pad violation list. Right click on the specific DFM Result (SolderPaste Pad/Pad) to see the Fix option.

Added numerous Plugin functions.
A number of plugin functions have been added to enhance the customization of the product. Details can be found within the Intellisense for the plugin.
