ground plane pad connectors - very thin?
« on: October 01, 2015, 03:41:15 am »
I am relatively new to Eagle (and electronics in general).

I have mae a few pcbs and they have been fine.

Something has been changed on my setup and I can't find out where.

When I made a ground plane and connected a pad to it previously, the thickness of the pad connector was quite robust - 12mil or 16mil - but now they are hairs breadth.

Can anyone point me to where I change this setting? I reloaded the default.dru, just in case, but it didn't make any difference.

Here are examples:

You need to change the width of your polygon wires for that pour.

IIRC, When you draw the polygon you can choose the size of the wires used, just the same as when drawing wires.
You can also change it after the fact using change->width

Time is the overseer of all things.

Aha! I do remember changing that.

Thanks very much.
