    Mounting hole clearance


      Hi there


      When drawing a plane in Xpedition Layout I cannot seem to get the plane any close than 0.2mm to the board mounting holes.

      This even when I set the minimum plane/hole distance to 0.1 (or 0) in the plane clearance (see pic attached).


      Is there any other setting that I should change? (I have deleted the tolerance in the hole size in the library but that didn't help).


      Also, as a side question, in the display control I have enabled the plane visibility but I cannot see the filled area of a dynamic plane (as in the pic).

      In the display control I have enabled those switches are per manual but without any luck..


      Edit tab—Layer Display section, plane layers to display

      • Edit tab—Global View & Interactive Selection section, Visibility, Planes.

      • Objects tab—Planes section, options to display




      I am using VX.2.4 (Update 2).

      Thanks for your help

          Hi there,


          For future reference: the solution is to reduce the “Pad to Plane” clearance in the Constraint Manager. I guess the setting in the Constraint Manager overrides the ‘Plane Classes and Parameter’ setting.


          Also in order to see the plane "fill" I needed to enable: Display Control - Objects - Planes - Data - Fill / Hatch


          Hope this helps
