CrystalMaker Down Under!

IMA 2018, Melbourne, Australia

19 September 2018

We were one of a select band of international exhibitors and sponsors at the International Mineralogical Association in Melbourne last month. This very-high profile event was held at the Eco-friendly Melbourne Convention Center, on the banks of the Yarra River, overlooking downtown Melbourne. We were able to engage with the world's leading mineralogists during a busy week from Monday 13 to Friday 17 August.

CrystalMaker is ideal for mineralogists - being originally created for mineralogy teaching: "shaking the dust" of mineral structures and letting students understand complexity via simpler, stylized building blocks. CrystalMaker X includes a stuctures library of over 1000 materials, including nearly 400 mineral structures!


CrystalMaker Visits Spain

31st European Crystallographic Meeting

19 September 2018

We were proud to be a premium, "Copper Sponsor", of the 31st European Crystallographic Meeting - held this year in the beautiful city of Oviedo in the picturesque Asturias region of Northern Spain.

The exhibition ran from 23 to 26 August in the spectacular - if controversial Palace of Exhibitions and Congresses (designed by the famous Santiago Calatrava). Two members of our team were present at the event and we were able to engage with a diverse range of crystallographers, mineralogists, chemists and biologists.

CrystalMaker Software Ltd is an associate member of the European Crystallographic Association - and was one of the most-important sponsors of this year's meeting.

CrystalMaker X Video Tutorials

Brand-New Audio-Visual Training Videos

4 July 2018

A new series of training videos is underway. We have uploaded the first eight of these - providing well over an hour of audio-visual training. The videos covering the basics of the CrystalMaker user interface, navigating the library browser, building a new structure from scratch, customizing atomic radii and element tables, placing a molecule onto a crystal surface, generating a supercell with the placed molecule, and creating an animation.

Designed to complement the existing "Quick Tours", these Video Tutorials are far more detailed and designed to be easier to follow along. We hope you find them useful!

E-MRS Spring Meeting 2018

Exhibition in Strasbourg

European Materials Research Society

29 June 2018

We exhibited at the European Materials Research Society's Spring meeting, held for a second consecutive year in beautiful Strasbourg.

This year the conference showed a more-professional flair, with the exhibition being held in a new, purpose-built exhibition hall (instead of having exhibitors relegated to corridors and stair wells!).

We had a high-profile corner booth which attracted plenty of attention - and not just for the crowd-pleasing "out-of-the-screen" 3D displays. We were pleased to demonstrate our very-latest software and had some memorable discussions with a diverse range of delegates from around the world.
