Modifying Silkscreen Layers

When processing Eagle’s BRD files, we use the following layers for silkscreen:

  • tPlace
  • tNames
  • _tsilk, if it exists
  • bPlace
  • bNames
  • _bsilk, if it exists

For including other layers (such as tValues), you will need to generate gerbers and submit those for your order.

If submitting a BRD file is preferred, you can modify the layer of text belonging to a footprint using the Smash tool. This lets you modify the text’s Layer property, and move it to one of the above layers.
