I am trying to open GDS generated from Encounter with FreePDK45. However the default view is very different from the following view, which is Virtuosso. Where can I find such customzations?
maybe you could ask the FreePDK45 guys politely to create a KLayout setup too :-)
FreePDK45 isn't quite consistent. Specifically the layer mapping from CDS layers to GDS is a mystery to me.
If there was a consistent setup you could try to convert the (exported) techfile to KLayout using the "tf_import" package (https://sami.klayout.org/search?name=tf_import). You'll need a layermap and a display.drf file too.
From : https://github.com/klayoutmatthias/FreePDK45_for_KLayout
you have the layer file, as well as the KLayout DRC and LVS technology files.
And there is a solution to the path problem: https://github.com/KLayout/klayout/issues/407
