Discrepancy between settings used and JLCPCB FAQSee original GitHub issue
On this page https://support.jlcpcb.com/article/194-how-to-generate-gerber-and-drill-files-in-kicad-6, the needed and/or recommended settings are shown.
It looks like what the script fabrication.py is using does not fully match the settings from the JLCPCB FAQ !
popt.SetSubtractMaskFromSilk(False) while JLCPCB recommands
popt.SetUseGerberProtelExtensions(False) where JLCPB recommands

You’re right 😄
Will do that in my lunch break …
I agree, this “Protel” extension is out-dated and probably, JLCPCB will change over the new, or they’ve already done it but forgot to update the FAQ.
Since all your PCBs came just fine, don’t lose time with search other option. The one with
SetSubtractMaskFromSilk is a good idea to change… but leave the rest as it is.
