Copper area intersect error

Hello Everyone,

I am getting Copper area intersect error.

If someone can spot the mistake, really appreciate it.
Let me know if you have any questions.


You have zones that touch, it even gives you the coordinates.

@bobc Thanks for the reply but it doesn’t look like they are overlapping, I checked the boundaries.

Are the two zones at the same priority level?

@davidsrsb Yes, They are. Haven’t change anything with the priorities, It shows 0 in the copper zone properties.

If not touching, they probably are actually too close. What version are you using ?

@bobc Cool, I will try to increase a gap between those two zones. I am using 4.0.7 on Ubuntu 16.04


yay! Increasing gap between those two zones resolves the issue. Just a question, Does the DRC consider traces minimum clearance for copper zones as well?

Giving one zone a different priority would have solved the overlapping


@davidsrsb sure, Thanks for the tip I’ll keep in mind.

A very recent Nightly bug fix was to solve an error when two zones were filled at the same time. I suspect that when there are different priorities, the fills are sequenced
