Copper Pouring Problem with Mounting Hole

Hello ,


We have a Mounting hole PCB decal having NPTH drill and a ring of copper surrounding that NPTH with some PTH terminals in that ring.

Now while DGND copper pouring , the Mounting hole with DGND net assigned to it does not merge with the poured copper.

PADS leaves some clearance from the outer copper ring of Mounting hole and the poured copper so we have to provide manual copper across that copper ring to merge the poured copper.

How can the poured copper directly merge with the mounting hole ring so as to avoid adding manual copper ?

So please provide some appropriate guidance for the same.


Best Regards ,
