    Hi,

    You need to dump out the technology file from Virtuoso by using the Technology ToolBox accessible form the CIW Tools menu.

    Click on Dump and choose teh technology library and specify the ascii file name then click ok.

    The file should automcatically opened into a text editor.

    Please search for minCutClassSpacing with VIA1 part of it

    The rule should be defined as follow:

    spacingTables( ( minCutClassSpacing tx_cutLayer1 tx_cutLayer2 ( ( "cutClass" (g_index...) nil "cutClass" (g_index...) nil) ['sameNet|'sameMetal] ['paraOverlap [g_overlap]] ['cutClassProfile (( "cutClass" (g_index...) nil "cutClass" nil|(g_index...) nil) (g_profileTable)] [g_default]) (g_table) ['manhattan] ) ) ;spacingTablesThanks,
    Alex
