Nice work! It may just be experimental, but it seems pretty close to a feature for 6.0 to me :-) I gave it a try on various boards I have worked on recently and it seems to work as advertised and is not noticeably slower than a solid fill on my computer.
Assuming we work out any issues related to this, I thought of two features we might want to add after this: 1) Allow 45-degree grids instead of just 90 2) Add a DRC check for stitching vias that would have connected to a solid fill but are off-grid and thus disconnected in grid fill? -Jon On Tue, Mar 13, 2018 at 4:10 AM, jp charras <jp.char...@wanadoo.fr> wrote: > I wrote a purely experimental option to fill zones (copper and not copper) > with a grid patter. > It is only an experimental feature made mainly to know what issues can be > created by this feature. > > The main issue is the fact polygons have much more corners, thus creating > a longer calculation time. > (However, grid pattern is expected to be used in specific cases) > > It should be compatible with the current DRC. > > Regards > > -- > Jean-Pierre CHARRAS > > _______________________________________________ > Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~kicad-developers > Post to : email@example.com > Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~kicad-developers > More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp > >
