About thermal pad and polygon pour

mulfycrowh , 06-24-2023, 02:19 AM
Hi everyone,

I have an IC with thermal pad.
I just want copper on the thermal pad.
The problem is that I get also copper around the pad when I fill the board with GND polygon pour.
I don't want this.
How can I solve the issue?

Thank you very much for help.

you can create polygon cutout areas, that should help (I think it is in the place menu)

Thank you very much for the advice, Robert.
After having done Polygon Pours > Repour All, it remains red dashed lines around the polygon pour cutouts.
Is it copper or just a reminder?

these may be just showing the edges where the cutout is in case you would like to select it?
