Electronic – Eagle via diameter discrepancy


I made a part in eagle with vias using a set diameter (smaller then auto), but when I use the part on a board, the vias go back to having a diameter of auto. any ideas?

enter image description here

The left window shows the board view of the vias and the right shows the library view of the same vias.

EDIT: ok I can change the via pad sizes by changing Restring Pad values in Design Rules, but it changes it for all components ignoring what I set up in the library. This causes all pads for all parts to become thin, instead of just for the ones I need.

You are letting the DRC settings override the diameter. Use the "as defined in library" (or something like that, can't remember the exact name) setting. That's what it's for.
