Applied Parameters: None


This feature is used to create via types from used vias. 


This command can be accessed from the Layer Stack Manager by:

  • Choosing the Tools » Create Via Types from Used Vias command from the main menus. 


After launching the command, the current drill pairs will be removed and are replaced with pairs created based on the actual vias currently used within the region of the PCB design associated with the active layer stack. A confirmation dialog will appear. Click Yes to effect the replacement.


  • Drill pairs must be defined to suit the layer stack-up style. This should be done in consultation with your board manufacturer to ensure that your design matches their fabrication technology.
