Returns all teardrop objects. Teardrops are often added to a routed PCB design to create stronger track-to-pad, track-to-via and track-to-track connections. This is valuable when the the design objects are very small, and is particularly valuable for drilled pads and vias, because mis-alignment between the drill center and the pad/via center can result in the drill hole removing much of the copper connecting the track to the pad/via - known as drill breakout. Each teardrop shape is created from a single region object, which can have straight or curved edges.
