# cross_section¶

LayoutView.cross_section(cross_section_path, process_flow=None, path_origin=0.0)

Generate a cross section of the structure along a path

Parameters: cross_section_path: i3.Shape shape, in layout coordinates, along which to take the cross-section process_flow: VFabricationProcessFlow virtual fabrication process flow. If not specified (None), TECH.VFABRICATION.PROCESS_FLOW will be used path_origin: float origin to use for the ordinate axis of the cross-section
