I'm recently trying to design a flex PCB. I haven't been able to find any specific tutorials on how to do this in Altium. But I did find Altium blogs detailing some of the best design practices for rigid-flex PCBs.

One thing that I haven't been able to replicate is the hexagonal hatch that they say enhances flexibility. I've trying to do this through polygon pour without any luck.

I would like to know if anyone has managed to achieve this type of hatch! Thanks!

    \$\begingroup\$ This would be a great suggestion for Altium's "Ideas" page, since I don't believe they currently support it: bugcrunch.live.altium.com/#Ideas/New \$\endgroup\$ – DerStrom8 Feb 18 at 11:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ Altium has an excellent (if poorly documented) scripting system. A script to generate such a hatch would be not too difficult to write. Or, generate in a 2D drawing program and import it as copper traces. \$\endgroup\$ – Jason Morgan May 23 at 10:14
