I have a problem where I need to connected a plane on the top of the board with stitching vias. In addition, these planes need to be exposed copper.
I started by creating a SMT pad, which I placed within a plane shape. That seems to work fine. But when I select the net, and add vias, I get a rats nest to each via, as if the via is not connecting to the planes (even after plane connect in pour manager).
1. How do I stitch two planes with vias?
2. How do I remove soldermask to expose the copper?
