Plating Thickness – Trace Mapping

      Hello,

      I have a question about trace mapping. When I imported trace in Ansys mechanical, plating thickness is always 0. I know I can change it by unchecking fill box, but I thought Ansys should be able to read it automatically. In general, can some one explain more about plating thickness column.

      Thank you,


      (there are lots of ODB++ file online. No matter which one you try, plating thickness is always 0.)

      It is the plating thickness of a via if it is unfilled.
      Trace Mapping in Mechanical (ansys.com)
      Plating Thickness This field displays the thickness of the interior wall of the via that is not filled. Only applicable when via is hollow (not filled).
      Filled Check and/or uncheck this fill to indicate whether the vias is filled or hollow.
      This field is always 0 in all imports I have seen.
