    That is simply brilliant work you have done. It prove that the multi $ companies in this IC CAD are well at sleep. And that there are lots of work to do in this area. I look forward to see a community to back it up. Feature list: net trace, extraction, 3d connextion control.

    Very nice little project. Got the docs out from gds2pov and managed to customize my process; so then i surfed around my own chip. :) Got ugly fps at first (~2@1M) but flattening/merging redundant geometries prior to stream-out of the gds helped it up to ~30. A bit sad that the source isnt released.
