I am designing a PCB in Altium. I finished my routing and proceeded to Polygon pour for Gnd plane. I was surprised to find the pour in between my 0805 caps pads as well. Although, I don't have a top overlay outline for my caps footprint, but even for components having footprints with top overlay outline, pour is there in between the pins. (I guess, keepout is the one that keeps copper out). I checked Polygon pour options, but couldn't find any thing to avoid it. Is it recommended to have pour in between pads as well? If not, how do it rectify this issue. I have over 60 caps, any shortcuts are also welcome.
Polygon pour between component pads is controlled by the standard clearance rule. The polygon is pulled back from pads and tracks of different nets by the distance called out in the clearance rule. You can change this rule (increase the clearance) to control whether or not copper is poured between the pads, but this will also change how much the copper is pulled away from other tracks and pads as well.
There is generally nothing wrong with copper being poured between 0805 footprints, though certain applications may require further consideration.
As @DerStrom8 says, you don't have to eliminate these. But if you really want to, you can use the "Remove Necks When Copper Width Less Than" setting
