    Hi Guys!
    Sorry for asking such a strange question, but perhaps sonne has dealt with blind vias. Could you please tell me, if I have, say a buried via going from layer 2 to 3, and I have a blind via going from layer 1 to 2. Can I draw the 1-2 via right on top of the 2-3 one? Or I should move them away from each other?

    Since you can't put a blind via between layers 2-3 then yeah, it's OK to overlap them as only one will exist anyway.

    Finally, don't use blind vias at all.

    Even if you are sure you need them just don't do it: they quadruple the cost of your board.
