In my work I use e-beam lithography a lot and one of the hassles is that manufacturers (e.g. RAITH) have implemented there own GDS structures (in that case Circular elements, where the beam is moved in a circular fashion). I do like KLayout a lot, so I thought I could open the files there. This additional structures are illegal according to the specs, so I understand that KLayout does not support them.
I was now wondering how such support could still work and looked a little bit into the streamers plugin, and there is no space to support each and every dialect that is probably floating around.
I was wondering if some kind of import filter could make sense, that converts the illegal GDS elements into PCells before the database is read.
Do you have some opinion on how such a use-case could be supported or are already some ideas/solutions floating around.
Thanks a lot for your software.
