CrystalMaker is the most-efficient way to visualize crystal and molecular structures.
Its interactive design lets you “see the wood for the trees” and build your own visual understanding of complex materials. CrystalMaker transcends traditional crystallography software, letting you create dynamical visualizations with rotatable animations. Energy-modelling tools let you design and relax new structures, predict their vibrational properties, and explore how they interface with other materials.
CrystalMaker provides a streamlined workflow that majors on productivity: just drag-and-drop your data files into the program for instant display in spectacular photo-realistic colour. Manipulate structures in real , with the mouse. Multiple View “bookmarks” and undo levels encourage exploration and discovery – ideal for teaching and research.
Integrated Structures Library – Now Add Your Own
CrystalMaker X includes an integrated structures library with 1000+ structures: annotated, indexed and with previews – ready for immediate display. The library includes all the major rock-fog minerals (350+ structures), plus important inorganic and organic crystals and molecules: from buckyballs to zeolites, and from dental ceramics to high-Tc superconductors. Also included is a teaching library of crystal-chal type structures, plus thematic libraries covering topics as diverse as chal warfare, medicinal chemistry, food flavourings and more.
You can browse structures in the Library Browser, by folder, or flat view or simply browse by selecting a thumbnail and watching a rotating structure with notes. This isn’t just a static library: you can add your own content, grouping structures into folders and taking advantage of CrystalMaker’s powerful search capabilities: search by filename, notes or chal formula.
Comprehensive Data Import & Export
Whilst the built-in libraries are great for teaching, researchers will want to visualize their own data – and they can! CrystalMaker X lets you import structural data from 40 different formats: with instant display and powerful customization. CrystalMaker can handle including multi-structure files such as DL_POLY HISTORY – use CrystalMaker’s synchronization and animation capabilities to rapidly understand structural behaviour, lattice dynamics, or visualize the trajectory of a simulation. CrystalMaker X can also handle truly massive structures. Take advantage of our unique “Depth Profiling” tool, to rapidly scan ares of interest in massive structures – ideal for characterizing the results from computer models.
Build New Crystals & Molecules Fast!
With CrystalMaker you can build any kind of crystal or molecular structure – quickly and easily. Built-in symmetry handling and the elegant spacegroup browser takes the slog out of crystallography, and the program will automatically generate all your bonds and polyhedra. Molecule building is even easier: point-and-click to add atoms and bonds. Use the new Relax command to minimize energy and optimize your structure.
CrystalMaker provides a wide range of model types, including traditional “ball-and-stick”, space-filling, polyhedral, wireframe and thermal ellipsoids. Each model type can be extensively customized, with the option of photo-realistic graphics or simpler, line-art display. CrystalMaker allows continuous plot range settings for millions of atoms, bonds and polyhedra.
