My customer wants a check print "with a very pale colour for each of the
top and bottom copper layers" plus the top silkscreen in black. Ideally
there should be a blend (purple) shade where there is both top (red) and
bottom (blue) copper. I hoped to send him PDF files so he can print
I'm still in the dark ages and am using Eagle 4.09r2, rather than v5,
and have tried the epscdraw.ulp available in the download area. It is
very close to what I need. With a little editing of the colours in the
ULP I can create quite effective pale colours for the Top and Bottom
layers. However, each subsequent layer (colour) appears to overprint
(perhaps not the correct printing term) the earlier ones rather than
mixing the colours together.
I use PDFCreator from www.pdfforge.com to create, and Adobe Acrobat
Reader v9 to check, the PDF files. Changing the Overprint options from
"Full Overprint" to "Non-Zero Overprint" in PDFCreator did not make any
difference to the result. I'm probably missing something quite simple.
Is there an alternative or recommended solution?
Thanks for your time & thoughts.
