Don't know if this will be of much help, but I had to get a similar result, what I did was first extrude my base plate to the size I wanted, then made the hex solid and used it has a cutting die with Boolean -> diff , , with the copy functions, it only took a few minutes to layout all the hex solids, then I boolean-diffed a few rows at a time.
