    What do you mean by "lower routes"? Your requirement is rather vague...

    foreach(newLayer'("M6" "M5" "M4" "M3" "M2" "M1")
      newPath=dbCopyFig(origPath origPath~>cellView list(0:0 "R0"))
      newPath~>layerName=newLayer
    )

    Something like that. This is assuming that the original path is in the variable origPath. The third arg to dbCopyFig is the transformation - and it leaves it in the same location.

    Hi Neeraj,

    I have used the script mention by Andrew and modified it little bit. Just load the script in CIW and select the Metal layer you want to copy and hit Ctrl+t. I have used only 3 metal ie M0, M1 and M2.

    procedure(metalStackUP()
    let((newPath MBL)
    x=css()
    MBL=x~>layerName
    if( MBL == "M0" then y="M1"
        else           
    y="M2"))
           
    newPath=dbCopyFig(x nil list(0:0 "R0"))
    newPath~>layerName=y
    )

    hiSetBindKey("Layout" "Ctrl<key>T" "metalStackUP()")

    You shouldn't really use css() in your code; this is a private SKILL function which was added as an internal debugging aid by one R&D group; there's always the chance it may get removed at some point.

    I tend to use it only when quickly typing stuff in the CIW - for code use car(geGetSelSet()) instead to ensure that your code is future proof.

    I am trying to create a rod path. Which should create a stack of top and its bottom layer with vias. for ex M2 Via1 M1. So that the vias should get automatically streached when i streach the path. 

     

    Thanks

    Neeraj
