Parent page: CAMtastic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to remove isolated and stacked pads from all internal signal layers in the current document.


This command can be accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Tools » Pad Removal command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button, on the Fabrication Tools drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.


After launching the command, an information dialog will appear, providing a summary of the isolated and stacked pads that were detected on all internal signal layers found in the current document. After clicking OK, the indicated total number of pads will be removed.


  1. One or more layers in the current document must be of type Internal in order for this command to be used.
  2. If using Altium NEXUS's PCB Editor to generate the Gerber files, disabling the Include unconnected mid-layer pads option - on the Layers tab of the Gerber Setup dialog - will effectively provide the same action as this command.
