Gradient Tool

KLayout tool for filling objects by linear layer/datatype gradients



Install through KLayout package manager. Alternatively you can clone the repository into ~/.klayout/salt/GradientTool.


Tool can be accessed through Edit -> Selection -> Fill by gradient. It will fill selected object by layer or datatype gradient.


  • Layers/Datatypes - specifies, if the gradient should by done by layers preserving the original datatype, or by datatypes preserving original layer
  • Start - layer/datatype of first gradient segment
  • End - layer/datatype of last gradient segment
  • Angle - gradient orientation
  • Number of steps - number of gradient segments
  • Keep original object - if not checked, original objects will be deleted
You can’t perform that action at this time.
