|board||A pad with technological properties|
|BOTTOM||The technological property of a board face which makes it the copper plated face|
|component||An electronic part defined in the electronic schematic and stored in the ECAD component library|
|component status||Describes the position of a component on a board:
unplaced: there is no constraint between the component and the board
placed: there is a surface contact between the component and the board
fixed: there is a fixity constraint between the component and the board
Dedicated geometrical constraints are also associated with components and determine whether you can move them.
|constraint area||A space reservation used for different purposes such as
allowing/forbidding the routing or placing of components etc.
When importing an IDF file, each constraint area belongs to a separate body under the PartBody. The separate body is renamed with the constraint area type (ex: PLACE_KEEPOUT).
This feature is available on both the board and the manufacturing panel.
|cutout||A hole or a pocket on a board|
|drilled hole||A hole used to mount a board in its case|

constraint area is a space reservation made up of several elements in
the same body. Each multi-domain constraint area belongs to a separate body
under the PartBody.
This feature is available on both the board and manufacturing panel.
|NPTH||Non plated: technological property of a hole which is not conductive (mounting hole)|
|offset||Represents the mounting constraint of a component onto the board. It can also be found between the board and the panel.|
|other outline||Other area type defined by an outline, cutouts and a thickness|
|panel||Optional file added to IDF 3.0 standard to allow manufacturing information exchange. It contains the manufacturing panel physical description as well as the boards and components location on the panel.|
|placed||See component status|
|place keepout||A mechanical space reservation where the component height is limited|
|place outline||An area where component placing is allowed|
|place region||An area where placing is limited to component of certain types|
|PTH||Plated: technological property of a hole which is conductive|
|route keepout||An area where routing electrical connections is forbidden|
|route outline||An area where routing electrical connections is allowed|
|status||See component status|
|TOP||The technological property of a board face which means it is not the copper plated face|
|unplaced||See component status|
|via keepout||An area where placing via is forbidden|
