I created a PCB, with B.Cu filled with GND, and F.Cu filled with +3V3.
Pad 14 on one of my ICs needed a connection to GND - to that end, I created a Via underneath the IC, in a belief that I would receive a warning from DRC/List Unconnected if the fill-function wasn’t able to fill this.
Colour me surprised when the PCBs arrived and it didn’t work. I then took a closer look at how the PCB had actually been filled and noticed this island of GND which isn’t connected to anything.
Is there something wrong with my assumptions/approach, or a bug in KiCad? For me, not having to manually route all connections and letting the fill-function do the “heavy lifting” in that respect is something I really appreciate.
(So far I’ve found two instances of this on my PCB (around 70 components in total, about 30 currently soldered/validated)
