[FEAT. REQUEST] Edit thermal relief for specific pads

I'm working on a big PCB which has both large through-hole connectors and small 0402 components. I need different widths for the thermal reliefs of each components. Is it possible to add, in a future release of Fusion 360, the ability to select a single pad of a component and enable a "thermal relief override", which changes the width and n. of spokes of the thermal relief?

At the moment, I created a lot of polygons, each with different thermal relief settings, but this operation is really annoying and time-consuming...

Kind regards,

Marco Cipriani

Hey Marco,


Thanks for the suggestion, I've made a feature request for it.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Great, thank you. I don't know how difficult of a feature it is, but if you could implement this in the next release it would be absolutely amazing.

Another pad-related feature to add would be teardrops... The teardrop ULP script  is a bit annoying to use, as it adds teardrops everywhere using little pieces of tracks, so moving the track connected to the pad messes everything up. Something like a checkbox on a "Pad properties" menu would be perfect... together with the thermal relief override!

Kind regards,

Marco Cipriani
