Snap ut Sections of Board

    Hi Pat, this is really PCB Manufacturer dependant so check what they are requesting.
    If you want a slot, these can be defined the same as for a slotted pad hole.
    Manufacturers treat slots as a 'special' as they do not form part of the standard Gerber or drill files. Normally a mechanical layer is defined with the slot outlines. Just make sure they are aware of your requirements and you stick to their requirements such as minimum slot width.

    You can add vias between the slots as a snap-off aid if required.
