Is via-in-pad bad for manufacturing?(thru-hole hollow-centre via)

I see some videos online that shows via-in-pad during manufacturing. But I don't think it is a good way, is it?

Not recommended, because some solder will wick down to the other side and the component on top will not solder correctly.

Remedial measure:

  • Use capped
  • Filled vias when doing via-in-pad to stop the solder draining away.

Remark: Before designing via-in-pad, don’t forget to talk to your PCB fabricator to find out what their capabilities are, and how much extra this costs.

What Others Are Asking

What do we need to check before releasing a PCB design?

After making efforts in a period, I finally finish my PCB design. Next step is releasing them to factory for production. To be honest, I don’t want any mistake on my file which may interrupt further prodution process. So what points should I pay attention when I double-check my design?
