I'm using Altium Designer 22 to design a PCB. On the top layer I have a ground plane with a hole in the middle. I made the hole by using a polygon cutout. Now, I have to pour into this cutout region some polygons, but I'm not able to do this. Do you have any solution to address this issue?
- As mentioned, shape the ground polygon so it avoids the area.
- Delete the cutout and place the desired polygon; set pour order on the manager so it pours first. GND will clear around it.
- Do as #2, but reshape/place a new cutout so it clears the border between polygons. (Now the exact shape of both polygons is less critical, and clearances can be set manually by its shape.)
2a: Do as #2, and set clearance rule between nets, or polygons, or whatever exactly you're after, to do the same as #3 but automatically. This assumes the clearance is uniform, of course.
