  • Via's not connecting to power planes


    I am trying to connect GND vias to the power planes on a 6 layer PCB. I am making layer 2 and layer 5 as my power planes. But when I assign the net name to the layer using split planes or polygon pour I don't see the via being connected. Please tell me what should I do.

    Is this question related to this one:

      I don't know what Altium version you use, but this how it should work:

      Once you assign a net name to power plane, it should automatically connect the power planes to vias and pads with the same netname.

      Why do you assume they are not connected?

      robertferanec the "problem" is when you double click on the layer name, it too will ask about the net connection. However, the short bit i worked with planes for these questions, did not seem to connect the plane to a net. The way you do in the video does work.
