In this video, learn how to customize your PCB board shape. In this case, start by making a circular board.
- [Instructor] We have a number of different methods…to set up or change our board shape.…So the first one we can take a look at is…just go to my View drop-down…and I would get to Board Planning Mode.…So from here, we can plan out our board shape.…And next go into Design and here I can redefine…my board shape, Edit or Modify Board Shape, Move and so on.…So let's try Redefine Board Shape,…it's probably one of the simplest methods.…
And then I can just click to sketch out…or regenerate really any board shape I like.…So let's do something like this.…I'm just making my board shape…just a little bit larger here as an example.…Yes and I've redefined this board shape…just to be a larger rectangular board as an example.…And if I'm happy with that, I can go back into my View…and back into my standard 2D Layout Mode view.…
And now I have a larger PCB board.…I have a number of more complex options as well.…Let's say for the lily pad again,…I want it to be a circular board.…So one option I have if I just go to Design Board Shape,…
