Concentric Polygon Pours?

I can't figure out for the life of me how to make copper traces of concentric circles. I need to make 6 traces concentric on a PCB as contact for pogo pins. Is there any simple way to draw the outline of the areas I want poured, and then use the pour outline command to do this? I have tried creating sketches in the electronics tab to do this, and tried copying regular sketches with no success. Any help would be appreciated. I have attached a photo of what I am referring to, drawing with the polygon command. it should be noted that the circular pour is not continuous, and has a seam at the 9 o'clock.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @jordanfoster2 ,

 

I hope you're doing well. This is an area where some improvement will be helpful. If you can make the concentric circles using lines that would be easier as long as the maximium width you need is some the line command can cope with.

 

Doing it with polygons is possible but there is no way to avoid the seam. You can enter the coordinates in the CLI to make the polygons easier to draw. If all of the segments connect to the same signal(I know that's probably not the case), then an easy option is to make a large circular poly and then use circles on the restrict layers to cut the gaps between the concentric rings.

 

If you continue to run into issues please let me know.
