    Pads Layout: Copper Pour / How to Setup Relief & Direct Connect?

    Florian

      Hi,

       

      is there an easy way to to define that some components (or pads) should use relief connect while some other components should use direct connect to connect the same copper pour?

       

      With Altium Designer I've used component classes for that purpose.

      Is there something similar in Pads Layout?

       

      Background:

      For better cooling, some transistors should be directly connected to the copper pour.

      But other components should use a relief connect for better manufacturing and easier rework.

       

       

      Best regards,
