The ability to convert drawn pads to flashed pads is included in our ViewMate PRO, CAMMaster Designer and CAMMaster software programs. It can be found under "Tools->Convert Drawn Pads..."

There is a "Global" option, which allows you to convert all drawn pads at once. This can be performed on a standalone layer, or you can guide the draw to flash operation using a "Guide" layer (typically the solder mask layer).

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

It is best to use the maks option, if a mask layer is available.
Otherwise, the software will have to guess which drawn elements are pads and which are not. It will convert only free-standing drawn shapes to flashed pads.
