A little bit more about Polygon

Polygon can be used for various purposes, for example:
  • We can draw large signal areas by using it in any shape.
  • or we can use it to fill the empty pcb area with copper, to make it look more professional.
  • For 1st purpose make a board in eagle, give name to the signal (as -ve in below fig).

  • Now draw the polygon (as i mentioned in my previous article) and give it the same name i.e., -ve.

The result is like this:
You can see the –ve signal and polygon merges together.

  • For 2nd option, just change the name of polygon (say Vcc) without changing the signal name.

  • After doing this you will find this:

Both the signals are separate.
So, you can easily find the difference between these two.
