    For export to PCB systems, better use Gerber format.
    With DXF, so you might get the outline only, because zero width polygons are not interpreted as filled.

    Thanks for replying

    In some papers, around passive filters are used polygon vias. How can I add them to thr pcb of Altium?

    I am not an Altium user, but try searching for "via fence".
