How do make a hole in the pc board with no copper on any layer (no via, no feed-through, etc.)?
I created a component in the Library and placed it on the PC board. It shows up with no copper on any layer, but the drill hole does not show up in the drill data file.
I also have a different mounting hole in the board with a copper feed-through and it shows up fine...with copper feed-through (and pads) and in the drill data file.
As insurance, I put a hole in the PC board as a part of the outline. I ordered the boards 3 times over the last 6 years. The first 2 orders the vendor included the holes, but the last order was missing the holes.
I'm not sure what I did right and what I did wrong.
If I include a hole as part of the PC board outline, should the vendor drill this hole even if it's not in the drill data?
