My first Eagle board is a fairly simple 2 layer board that I'm auto-routing.
The worst problem I have is that the auto-router refuses to use via's.
It will route a long snake all around to connect to a pin 0.2" away just to avoid a via (I have 0 via's & the routing finishes in about 20 secs.
Is there a way to set the via cost to 0 or is there some other way?
I'm also trying to set the traces and clearances larger that 8 mils which seems really tight, but it doesn't seem to be using my new numbers.
