Connection Problem

Hi Guys,

I have to modify footprints of a routed board, so a connection problem appeared. Attached screenshot shows the case, trace is electrically connected but trace width is not enough. I was wondering which design rule can help us to report this case?

This is an interesting one! That will probably even pass minimum track width rule! Maybe I would make a copy of the project, then I would change the width of all tracks to as low as possible (e.g. 0.001mm) and checked for the unconnected nets. However, I would also try to select all the components with this footprint and visually checked the connections to its pads.

Dear Robert,
Due to large number of component visual check is actually no good choice.

Did you come up with some other solution? Did changing the track with help?

I believe they added a DRC check for that in Altium 17. With the older versions you just need to be careful while routing - it is always good to keep the snap enabled and to finish the tracks at the centre of the pads. Selecting all the tracks will help you see how deep in the pads they are going.
