To put a thermal pad in Eagle you just put a via and connected to ground or change the name to GND, my question is how can we make thermal vias similar to the below image (via without copper on top or bottom) in Eagle.

There is no copper around the vias it seems solder mask covers it, and the drill is very small similar to micro via. (Via fencing)

enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ I don't know if it's possible to do this directly in Eagle, but the software I use can't do this, so I add vias, then just delete out the resist mask in the Gerbers to cover them. \$\endgroup\$ – Phil G Nov 13 at 21:14
