Hi Jorge, did you get an email from me with a sample design which shows
MCAD can't render board outlines with arc's in them properly?

Hi Glenn,

I have it, I'm still catching up on my backlog I was out of the office
for almost 2 weeks. I'm almost caught up though so you should have a
response before the end of the day.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

Hi Jorge,

I received your reply by email.

So I have board outlines in one library and different bus types in a
second library to logically separate them.

Then depending on the board being designed I mix and match them.

They are defined in different packages as that provides the most
flexible use of these objects and greatly simplify's things for me.

Would some kind of ulp help to merge the two together after being added
to the drawing?

Hi Glenn,

Unfortunately, we don't have anything for it at this time. Its a pretty
niche situation so I don't for see us writing anything for it.

One thing you could try to make it easier on yourself, is to change the
layer of the outlines in the library to something other then dimension.
When you bring the parts into your design use the
copy-wire-to-any-layer.ulp to copy the outlines from your library layer
to layer 20 Dimension. This will put the outlines together on your board
as a single outline and should make ecad.io happy.

Try that and let me know how it goes.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia
