You can set the clearance for your NPTH pad to be that large.

I made a quick test and set it in the footprint properties of the placed mounting hole footprint. You can also do this in the footprint editor and save the modified footprint into your personal lib.

How does DRC work with that?


#8

if you mean with a copper circle, DRC will ignore that… but the topic still gives nice info on the need and workarounds
For example you could create a no fill zone with a discretized circle, so DRC would be fine with it…

thanks,body.u help me a lot :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

@maui: Thank you. I guess that the the copper on that actual circular pad is not considered a track (trace), so this recipe works.
