Hello there,
i try to create a new Part for the SFH 4726S. The actual footprint was not a big problem. But in the Datasheet they recommend a copper area around the footprint which should not be visable. I dont know how i insert these copper areas around the smd Pads. I attached a picture of the recommended footprint.

Hi Walter,

You can add copper to a footprint, and you can associate it with the same net as the pad. If you need help with this please email support@pulsonix.com and we can help you further.

Right - What Lewis Said.

You have your middle pad with comes with a soldermask -- and then you just apply a copper shape over that middle pad.

When you use it in your design, the copper shape will need to connected to the same net as the pad.
