Discrepancy between settings used and JLCPCB FAQ

See original GitHub issue

On this page, the needed and/or recommended settings are shown. It looks like what the script is using does not fully match the settings from the JLCPCB FAQ ! For example, popt.SetSubtractMaskFromSilk(False) while JLCPCB recommands true. Or popt.SetUseGerberProtelExtensions(False) where JLCPB recommands true.

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.
