To export GDS, you can go to File->Export->Stream... in the CIW.

In the new window that opens up, specify a stream file.

Select the technology library (NCSU_techlib_tsmc02d).

Select YOUR library, top level cell and "layout" as the view.

Click on "Options".

Click on the "Layers" tab.

Click on "Load File".

Load this file of layer information: /mada/software/techfiles/NCSU_CDK_1.5.1/pipo/streamInLayermap

Click on "Translate".

Turn in the GDS file. TELL ME WHAT THE TOP LEVEL CELL IS.

You can check that your file exported correctly by: 1) creating a new library, do a File->Import->Stream... 3) specifying the correct "top level" cell to translate. Another check is that the summary of objects is the same:
