Hi Michael,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes.

This will likely work with the concentric hexagonal layout but much more
difficult with the areas between. See the attached pic, specifically the
black filled circles.

Regarding the chamfer, that is what I thought. All 169 holes.

I will give the curve projection a go.

Thanks again.
