Copper Between Pads

#1 Post by mbelectronicdesign » 12 Nov 2017, 08:28

I have a project that uses a 4 AHr battery that supplies power along tracks across my PCB and I designed a simple fuse (which is just an 0603 resistor with a thin copper trace between the 2 pads) in case the end of the track gets shorted to ground; if that happened, the fuse should blow first (thinnest copper) and then I can repair by putting a zero ohm resistor on the unpopulated 0603 pads.

I already made this but it gives a gap error in the PCB layout - see picture. Is there some way to suppress the error or avoid it happening in the first place?

A trace with two nodes and a smaller trace then a solder mask placed on the area
