2 possibilities here.
1. The technology that contains the above information is not actually in your technology graph.
You don't specify if the libraries " cmos045_tech_abstract" or "library_test_place_route_lef" contain this information.
I suspect it should be in another library that you have not mentioned.
2. This is probably the real reason:
When you use the abstract Generator, with default settings. It looks for information in the "LEFDefaultRouteSpec" constraint Group.
You have not defined it there.
But you do have it defined in anothe C.G: "virtuosoDefaultSetup".
So there are 2 alternatives:
1.Put the routing grids information in the LefDefaultRouteSpec CG.
2. In the abstract generator click File->General options-> and enter "virtuosoDefaultSetup".
That should fix the problem
In reply to ColinSutlieff:
Thanks Colin, it works defining the routingGrids in the "LEFDefaultRouteSpec" group.
