    Connecting two paths together Reply

    I want to stretch and connect two paths which are apart by less than a fixed spacing(say 0.003 micron). This is needed because while doing dbLayerTile(), the newly created rectangles, which were part of the same polygon sometime tend to be cut apart by 0.003 u or so.

    Any idea on how to implement this?

    What subversion of virtuoso are you using? (Do help->About in the CIW). There was an issue at one point where the dbLayer functions were snapping to the mfg grid - this was later changed back, and an optional argument added to allow gridding to be performed if needed (see Cadence Online Support Solution 11481956 for more details).

    Otherwise I can't see why you'd end up with these small gaps. Also, dbLayerTile produces rectangles/polygons, yet you're talking about paths -  I assume this must be related to your other similar post?

    Anyway, the best solution is to try to prevent these gaps from happening in the first place. It seems a little odd that there are 0.003 spaced gaps - is the data not on grid in the first place?

    Best Regards,
