gdsfactory.boolean(A: ComponentOrReference, B: ComponentOrReference, operation: str, layer1: LayerSpec | None = None, layer2: LayerSpec | None = None, layer: LayerSpec = (1, 0)) Component[source]#

Performs boolean operations between 2 Component/Reference/list objects.

operation should be one of {‘not’, ‘and’, ‘or’, ‘xor’, ‘-’, ‘&’, ‘|’, ‘^’}. Note that ‘|’ is equivalent to ‘or’, ‘-’ is equivalent to ‘not’, ‘&’ is equivalent to ‘and’, and ‘^’ is equivalent to ‘xor’.

Parameters:
  • A – Component(/Reference) or list of Component(/References).

  • B – Component(/Reference) or list of Component(/References).

  • operation – {‘not’, ‘and’, ‘or’, ‘xor’, ‘-’, ‘&’, ‘|’, ‘^’}.

  • layer1 – Specific layer to get polygons.

  • layer2 – Specific layer to get polygons.

  • layer – Specific layer to put polygon geometry on.

Returns: Component with polygon(s) of the boolean operations between

the 2 input Components performed.

Notes:#

  • ‘|’ is equivalent to ‘or’.

  • ‘-’ is equivalent to ‘not’.

  • ‘&’ is equivalent to ‘and’.

  • ‘^’ is equivalent to ‘not’.
