PCB Export: Cylindrical Holes vs holes with a lot of faces

HI all. I've exported a PCB from Eagle 9.6.1 to Fusion, and there's some inconsistent behavior with PCB holes in the Fusion body.

 

Even with copies of the same component/footprint, sometimes the holes for the component are normal, cylindrical holes, but sometimes they're structures composed of a lot of flat faces.

 

Why might this be happening? It makes joints referencing the center of some holes VERY difficult.

 

What can I do to prevent the face-type hole -- or what might I have done to make it happen for some and not others?

 

The attached screenshot shows 2 holes, both from the same Eagle footprint  ( 2 of the same components side by side).  I see this behavior with a number of components where some are normal holes and some are not.

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi @gmdouglas,

I hope you're doing well. I've pinged the developers on this.

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

Hi @gmdouglas,

I hope you're doing well. The devs got back to me, it turns out this is a complex issue that occurs whenever fusion merges copper objects. They've made a few improvements but there's still more to do.
For now there is no workaround.

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