Setting Pad Diameter For Viaholes?

Question asked by mjelen on Oct 7, 2004

I´m facing the following problem:

When I place a viahole in the layout manually, I can change the drill diameter AND the pad diameter.

If I have the layout made automatically from Schemax, transmission lines, vias etc. are converted automatically to a corresponding layout. In the model for the microstrip via, I can change the drill diameter which is used for simulation AND layout, but I can´t find a way to change the diameter of the pad around the via. I have to change this to the needs of our fabrication...

So the only way I can do this is by a) simulating in Schemax, b) making the Layout, c) deleting all vias, d) adding new vias in layout. But this ist not really convenient.

Any suggestion how I can change the standard footprint? Or, at least, change the pad diameter in layout?

Thanks for any help,
