Blank Gherkin

Gherkin PCB without silkscreen

I wanted some plain white PCB's. I ordered them without the GTO and GBO gerber layers. The GTO is the top silkscreen layer, GBO is the bottom silkscreen layer. You have to remove these files from the zip file before uploading them to EasyEDA. Other EDA programs may use different file extensions than these, so preview whatever you upload to be sure it is correct.

Without the silkscreen layers you lose all the parts legends. You will need some other way of identifying correct part placement and orientation.
