    Via to Via Clearance?

    Florian

      Hello,

       

      I'm routing my first boards using Pads Layout and have some problems when placing vias.

       

      I'm using metric units.

      In the design rules I've set the via to via clearance to 0.2 mm.

       

      For the via placement I'm using a 0.25 mm grid.

      Placement of the first via works fine.

      But when I want to place another via close to the first one, I get the message "Cannot create via or wire endpoint at this location" in the output window.

       

      I'm only able to place the second via if there is more than about 1.2 mm space between the copper of the two vias.

       

      Do you have any suggestions how I can get rid of this behaviour?

       

       

      Best regards,

       

      Florian
