Thermal relief pads

Is it possible to just click on a pad in layout and change it to a thermal relief one?


Yes. Hold down the left-click until you see the disambiguation menu and select the pad. Then press E to edit or right click and choose properties.


Thanks Seth - I need a bit more help on this. If I just select ‘thermal relief’ will it do it automatically with default values or do I have to add any other data eg thermal relieve overrides etc? Also, I not nothing changes on the pad on my screen - is it possible to view the thermal relief?

(I probably need to go through in my footprint library and change the pads)



Reliefs are done when zones are filled. Use b hotkey.
