array with circular shape

edited February 2017 in General
I'm trying to create an array of circles with a global circular shape and I'm wondering if that's possible in a gds2 file. I only know how to create an orthogonal array (or a tilted orthogonal array). Of course one possible solution is to approximate the circular shape by smaller and smaller arrays but perhaps there exists an easier solution. Another solution would of course be to place each circle to a specified position until the desired pattern develops, but as the array is quite big I guess the file size would also turn out quite huge.
Thanks a lot and best regards!

    GDS2 does not provide features for representing this kind of array. You can however, represent one row of shapes by a one-dimensional array. This will substantially reduce the amount of data required for your layout.
