Plug-In Example: A simple window extraction of polygons
This is a very simple plug-in example (on Windows) that shows a developer how to define a rectangular window on screen and then extract all of the polygons and boundaries that cross that window.
How It Works
The user opens a GDSII or OASIS file
The user sets the structure to view (usually the top structure)
The user turns on any layers that data should be extracted from.
the plug-in is started
the user specifies a window (on screen using the mouse)
The user selects an output file name
The users clicks OK and the resulting polygons are written to a disk file
A flash video of this process can be seen here
Download the Binary (.dll)
If you want to install the polygon.dll plug-in create a directory under the /wcad/qckvu3/plugin directory called polygon and place the polygon.dll there. When you start up Qckvu3 you will see the polygon in the Tool pull down menu.
