How to creat gerber layer for glue screen creation?
We want to use our screener to apply the glue to the board. The gerber files have the layer for the pads which we can get a screen for applying soldering paste by sending it to board house. What's more, the gerber files do not have a layer that would represent what we would need to create a screen for applying glue. How to handle this?
In some EDA software, it is possible to do this. For example, in Altium you can create a mechanical layer pair called something like 'glue layer' and the designed glue dots will appear on the appropriate layer for the component.
You can create a separate footprint that would be specifically for glue application. By pairing the two layers you would not have to manually add all of the glue footprints.
