Altium Designer Keepout Region for Defined Polygon Nets
« on: September 07, 2023, 06:08:14 am »
I want to create a keepout zone for ethernet transformer sub in altium, but only the polygon pour of gnd will be blocked in this zone. I want to allow other polygon pours made in this other zone, how can I do that? i.e. how can I define a custom keepout for gnd?

If you want to define the area with another polygon, you can pour that and set its priority higher than Gnd in the polygon manager.

Otherwise, may be able to draw some region and have a DRC rule for InNet GND, IsPoly, etc. not sure on the specific step though. Keepout wouldn't work.
