Hi, Nanda

Just make normal PCF structure, add a circle at the center, and delete two circles in the first layer. Script is useful to do this.

You may want to use the hexagonal lattice H-cavity structure group from the Object Library, which is also used in this example:

You can use this structure group to set up the patterning of the cladding with H number set to 2 so the central rod and innermost ring of rods is not included, then you can manually add the necessary additional rods to fill in the desired pattern in the central region.
