Advanced Teardrop Control

Pad breakout is a huge problem in PCB manufacturing, especially when dealing with small and dense boards. Teardrops are one method used by designers to help combat this issue, and with Altium Designer 14.3, the system has been improved significantly. An enhanced setup dialog, support for neckdowns and T-junctions, and the use of regions instead of individual tracks and arcs all mean more control for designers over how teardrops will be implemented.
