Collision on component bounding box
« on: December 27, 2020, 11:33:14 am »
Hi guys,

I created two simple components - PCB holes. Now when I place them, they give off a Collision error as shown on the pictures. The components do not intersect in any way aside from their automatically generated rectangular bounding box. Is there any way to specify the boundaries as non-rectangular?

Thanks,

David

In Altium, if you dont add a 3D object to a footprint, it generates the outer bounding box as the size of the component.
There are multiple solutions for this:
You can set the item on the schematic as BOM, Mechanical
Edit the footprint properties to be Mechanical (probably the most proper way)
Add a small 3D object or the screw to the footprint
Add an exception to the rule

I dont know which one could work in CS

Awesome, thanks! Works like a charm, I just added a small barely visible cylinder into the middle of the hole.
