    Via array functions Reply

    Hi guys, 

    basic question really. 

    im building a basic 2 layer board. my routing is on the top. when i was defining the copper area's for top and bottom i assinged them to net supply_0. which im saying is GND.

     i want to connect the top copper planes to the bottom copper plane using via patterns for shielding and stiching. when in the via array function i assigned the via net as supply_0. and ran i looked at this on the 3d viewer and it looks as if it is connecting the bottom etch to the top etch.

    i just wanted to know is this the correct way of doing it? and will this suffice for copper shielding around traces and stiching.

    Thanks

    Regards

    Fran
