CrystalMaker 10.1

Building Strong Foundations for the Future

21 November 2017

We are pleased to announce the immediate availablity of CrystalMaker 10.1 for Mac and Windows. Building on the groundbreaking performance of CrystalMaker X, this major update provides a solid foundation for future development.

The new version includes a complete, 310-page User's Guide, two extensively-updated tutorials and redesigned online help. New features include control over output graphics resolution, a new "Labels to Textboxes" command, greatly-refined atom label positioning, self-rotating animations, a "trim to selection" range command - plus the ability to hide all atoms with fewer than two bonds. The software includes a new "Structural Architecture" library with multi-structure files designed to illustrate the construction of different crystal-chemical type structures: quartz, spinel and feldspar.

Windows users will find greatly-improved video with a new built-in codec plus the option of higher-performance H.264 video export. Users with the new "Surface Pro" and similar tablets will be able to use full touchscreen rotation and scaling.

CrystalMaker X version 10.1 is a free update to registered CrystalMaker X users. We strongly recommend that all users update their software today: this is a highly-substantial release which also includes fixes to all known bugs. Learn More: Mac Release Notes | Windows Release Notes | Download

Welcome to High Sierra

Our Genuine Mac Software Supports Apple's Latest Operating System

3 October 2017

We are delighted to reaffirm our commitment to the Mac and announce that the latest versions of all our products - CrystalMaker X, CrystalDiffract 6 and SingleCrystal 3 - are fully-compatible with macOS 10.13 "High Sierra".

To the best of our knowledge, CrystalMaker X is the ONLY genuine native Mac application for crystal & molecular structures. All other software runs in emulation or via third-party shells - such as Java, Qt, wxWidgets, etc. Only CrystalMaker gives you the full Mac experience: the true, native interface, full system integration, native performance - not to mention elegance and easy-of-use.

International Union of Crystallography

30 August 2015

We had a very-successful trip to India last week, exhibiting at the IUCr 2017 triennial meeting. The conference was held in Hyderabad, at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. Following an opening ceremony on the Monday night, we exhibited for five full days - meeting many crystallographers from around the globe.

We are very pleased to announce that the winner of the IUCr 2017 raffle is Rishika Rai, a Ph.D. student at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Thiruvananthapuram. Rishika wins a full CrystalMaker licence for one year. We wish her every success in her studies!

CrystalMaker X

All New 64-Bit Multi-Core Application

3 July 2017

We are delighted to announce the launch and immediate availability of CrystalMaker X: an all-new program for crystal/molecular modelling.

CrystalMaker X was developed, from scratch, using the latest object-oriented technologies from Apple and Microsoft. The program features industry-leading 3D "Retina" graphics, a workstation-class 64-bit multi-core architecture - and an elegant, easy-to-use Mac or Windows native interface.

CrystalMaker X provides a seamless workflow for understanding the complex 3D structures of crystalline materials and molecular structures. Standout features include multi-structure browsing and rotatable animations - an industry first - plus a revised energy-modelling engine that allows crude, hand-drawn 2D molecular models to be transformed into energetically-favourable 3D structures.

CrystalMaker X can import nearly 40 different file formats, with automatic bond and polyhedral generation, plus extensive real-time editing options to create the perfect visualization. Volumetric data can be combined with structural data to visualize electron density, porosity - or arbitrary 3D datasets imported from other programs.

The software also includes an integrated structures library of 1000+ structures, each with annotation and preview, and ready for immediate display: ideal for teaching and reference. A new Library Browser provides an album-like display with rotatable previews and powerful search capabilities. Users can add their own structure libraries and catalogue their contents: an ideal way to maintain cherished data sources.

CrystalMaker X is available as a paid-for upgrade for existing users of CrystalMaker 8/9 (Mac) or 2/9 (Windows). For more details of the new features, please see the What's New? page, or to order an upgrade, visit our online sales and licensing page.

Diffraction Just Got Faster

3 July 2017

We are delighted to announce the launch and immediate availability of SingleCrystal 3.0: a major update of our Apple Design-Award winning software for X-ray and Electron diffraction simulation from single crystals.

SingleCrystal 3 features massive performance improvements, thanks to parallel processing. Compared to its predecessor, simulation of complex diffraction patterns is 4-8x faster on a typical desktop computer.

Other changes include a streamlined new interface with faster graphics, the ability to import structural data from CIF or CMTX files, and powerful stereographic projection capabilities for visualizating spatial relationships.

SingleCrystal 3.0 is available as a paid-for upgrade for existing users of SingleCrystal 2 for Mac or Windows. For more details of the new features, please see the What's New? page, or to order an upgrade, visit our online sales and licensing page.
