How do you use vias EAGLE?

To place a via mid-route, first left-click in the black ether between pins to “glue” your trace down. Then you can either change the layer manually in the options bar up top, or click your middle mouse button to swap sides. And continue routing to your destination. EAGLE will automatically add a via for you.

How do I draw a silk screen outline?

The silk screen outline is drawing exactly the same way as out dimension details in the previous step using the ‘Wire’ tool. Once that’s done, just draw a rectangle that’s slightly larger than the mechanical dimensions of the board, making sure that we don’t place the lines over any copper pads!

Can I print silk screen on copper pads?

Be sure not to place any lines on top of the copper pads, since you can’t print silk screen on bare copper pads! Create your outline slightly larger than the actual physical dimensions, so that you can still see the outline once the part is physically place (perhaps 0.1 – 0.2mm larger on each side)

What size should the logo be on silkscreen?

That’s what I did with our logo. In EAGLE we will be only importing one color. To gauge the appropriate size, use 175 pt font on the artwork. When this gets added to the actual silkscreen the size will be around a 1/4″ high.

Do I need a silk screen on my PCBs?

This isn’t a replacement for the dimension details we added in the last step — The silk screen on your PCBs isn’t very reliable since it often gets shifted a bit to the side during manufacturing — but it’s worth adding as a visual indicator for assembly. Always place the lines or text on Layer 21 (tPlace)!
