I am trying to create a footprint for a Würth Elektronik PCB standoff that will be grounded to a plane on the on the bottom of my PCB. It requires a NPTH, but has a copper annular pad only on one side. I was able to create this (both in a nightly and the current stable release) in the Footprint Editor, however the Footprint Editor does not allow adding a Pad Number to the annular ring when a NPTH is selected. Is there a known way to accomplish this?
I would note, when added to the PCB, the 3D and gerbers all look correct. I just cannot tie the copper annular pad to the GND net.
I hereby certify that I am not simply asking someone else to design a footprint for me.
This is an auto-generated message that is in place on the “footprints” section of the KiCad.info forum. If I remove it and ask for a footprint to be designed anyway, I understand that I will be subject to forum members telling me to go design my own footprint or referring me to a 3rd party footprint site.
