How do I create a sketch in Fusion 360 and turn it into a ground plane in PCBs?

I have a PCB to create that has a very unusual shape. It also includes ground planes with unusual shapes. I've created the PCB outline in Fusion, as a sketch, and turned that into my PCB outline. I've also created a sketch to define the shape of my ground planes. I saved that sketch as a .dxf and then imported that into the PCB. Now I have an outline of the plane I want, and it's on the correct layer. How do I fill it?

Hello @tracy.wynn,


I hope you're doing well. So assuming the outline is a perfectly closed contour(doesn't cross over on itself and has no gaps in it's contour), all you have to do is right click on a segment of the outline and select Convert to Polygon. 


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
