hi guys

I know that we can open holes on the layout in eagle but I need to open some square windows and I was wondering if it can be done.

Regards,
Pejwaak

Draw some wires
- with width=0 (not necessary, but useful)
- in layer 'Dimension' (obligatory).
This is the layer where the outline information is stored. You can use
all line drawing tools here (wire, circle, arc) to create arbitrary shapes.

Note that sharp corners are expensive, if possible at all, to manufacture.
Use wire widt of 2.6mm or manuf recommendation for millings. You may open
the corners a bit more if needed.
