CRYSTALMAKER SOFTWARE LTD RELEASES MAJOR VISUALIZATION SOFTWARE
CrystalMaker 8.6 for Mac / 2.6 for Windows:
New Formats, Favourites, Elements.
Oxfordshire, UK (April 26, 2012) – CrystalMaker Software Ltd., have announced the immediate availability of a major update to their award-winning “CrystalMaker” program, featuring powerful new organization tools, file import formats, and element selection.
CrystalMaker is an elegant, easy-to-use program for visualizing all kinds of crystal and molecular structures, with 3D viewing, real-time measurement and manipulation, and advanced animation and video output.
The latest version (8.6 for Mac; 2.6 for Windows) provides new ways of organizing structures files: a Favourites pane displays graphical previews of the user’s chosen files; these can be re-arranged, sorted, and made into slideshows, animations or movies. A new Recent pane provides a visual index of recently-opened files, and is complemented by a new Open Recent submenu. CrystalMaker provides virtually-unlimited undo and redo levels – with graphical previews of each step, making it easy to step backwards or forward in the workflow – or select a particular step.
CrystalMaker now supports over 20 different file formats: featuring auto-detection and loading, for rapid analysis of structures. This now includes the ‘VASP’ and ‘WIEN2k’ formats, as used in crystal energy simulations. Other changes include the ability to instantly replot a structure using a range of different atomic radii presets, for example, to show the effect of Covalent, Ionic or Van-der-Waals atomic radii on packing of atoms in a crystal lattice.
CrystalMaker is available directly from CrystalMaker Software Ltd (www.crystalmaker.com) from just $399/£240 (personal education licence). Multi-user, site and student licensing options are available and a free demonstration version is available. For more details, please visit: http://www.crystalmaker.com/crystalmaker/
