copy(deep: bool = True, **kwargs) Self#

Copy a Tidy3dBaseModel. With deep=True as default.

classmethod from_file(fname: str, **parse_kwargs)#

Loads a Tidy3dBaseModel from .yaml or .json file.

Parameters
  • fname (str) – Full path to the .yaml or .json file to load the Tidy3dBaseModel from.

  • **parse_kwargs – Keyword arguments passed to either pydantic’s parse_file or parse_raw methods for .json and .yaml file formats, respectively.

Returns

An instance of the component class calling load.

Return type

Tidy3dBaseModel

Example

>>> simulation = Simulation.from_file(fname='folder/sim.json')
classmethod from_json(fname: str, **parse_file_kwargs)#

Load a Tidy3dBaseModel from .json file.

Parameters

fname (str) – Full path to the .json file to load the Tidy3dBaseModel from.

Returns

  • Tidy3dBaseModel – An instance of the component class calling load.

  • **parse_file_kwargs – Keyword arguments passed to pydantic’s parse_file method.

Example

>>> simulation = Simulation.from_json(fname='folder/sim.json')
classmethod from_yaml(fname: str, **parse_raw_kwargs)#

Loads Tidy3dBaseModel from .yaml file.

Parameters
  • fname (str) – Full path to the .yaml file to load the Tidy3dBaseModel from.

  • **parse_raw_kwargs – Keyword arguments passed to pydantic’s parse_raw method.

Returns

An instance of the component class calling from_yaml.

Return type

Tidy3dBaseModel

Example

>>> simulation = Simulation.from_yaml(fname='folder/sim.yaml')
help(methods: bool = False) None#

Prints message describing the fields and methods of a Tidy3dBaseModel.

Parameters

methods (bool = False) – Whether to also print out information about object’s methods.

Example

>>> simulation.help(methods=True)
to_file(fname: str) None#

Exports Tidy3dBaseModel instance to .yaml or .json file

Parameters

fname (str) – Full path to the .yaml or .json file to save the Tidy3dBaseModel to.

Example

>>> simulation.to_file(fname='folder/sim.json')
to_json(fname: str) None#

Exports Tidy3dBaseModel instance to .json file

Parameters

fname (str) – Full path to the .json file to save the Tidy3dBaseModel to.

Example

>>> simulation.to_json(fname='folder/sim.json')
to_yaml(fname: str) None#

Exports Tidy3dBaseModel instance to .yaml file.

Parameters

fname (str) – Full path to the .yaml file to save the Tidy3dBaseModel to.

Example

>>> simulation.to_yaml(fname='folder/sim.yaml')
