Increasing thermal relief widths

Postby Chuan Liu » Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:04 pm

You can run a wider trace from the Pin to the copper pour on top the thermal relief line. This way will increase width of the thermal relief.

Select the “free style routing” on top to run trace, then start from the center of the Pin draw a trace to the copper pour.
