How to define an edge connector / gold finger

I need to move the attached pad (composed of a ring and a top/bottom pad) on the edge of the PCB, but this is not compatible with the DRs and Fusion doesn't let me do it. 

Is there a way to define an edge pad that can bypass the distance rule from the board dimensions?

Hello @FrankEagle,


I hope you're doing well. The easiest thing to do is to disable the copper/dimension check in the DRC. Go to DRC > Distances tab and set the copper/dimension value to be 0.


That should take care of it. Once you have it placed then make sure to set it back to whatever your board house can do.


Best Regards.
