    You can use the F.mask & B.mask to expose copper for back and front layer respectively. Just use the shape that you like on the mask layer, and it should exclude the solder mask.

    However, it won’t be bare copper, it will go through the surface finish that you chose [HASL/ENIG/LF HASL]. So, please contact the manufacture and specify your requirements, they might help you with further process.
