Question

I have pins that are not connecting to the copper shape as expected. How can I correct this?


Solution

  1. Select the shape then select Parameters from your right mouse pop-up menu.

    Your selection opens the Dynamic Shape Instance Parameters dialog.

  2. Open the Thermal relief connects tab.

  3. Verify the “Minimum connects” is not set to a value that is too large. For example, if the value is set to 4 but the shape can only add 2 spokes then it will fail and no connection will be made.



  4. Reduce the value to allow the shape to connect.
