CrystalMaker 9.2 Powers Ahead
1 June 2015
Fourteen months after its launch, CrystalMaker 9 has had
its second major update. The new version adds three new
file formats, support for atom vector import, improved
energy modelling, more robust software installation (Windows),
plus numerous productivity features.
CrystalMaker 9.2 now supports loading multiple atom
vector definitions from a CrystalMaker text (CMTX) file - making
it easy to visualize vector fields, or provide regular input
for property visualization.
Structural data can now be imported from TOPAS and DMol3
files (the latter include two formats, single-molecule ".car"
and multiple-structure ".arc"). Data can also now be
exported to a DMol3 ".car" file.
Energy modelling has been improved with some major work
on the treatment of small inorganic molecules. This should ensure
that more-realistic bond lengths are generated. In addition,
the Add Hydrogens command will now recognise boron and add
the requisite number of H atoms.
Other changes include "Spaces"-aware Tile and Stack
Windows commands (Mac), plus a new Spaces-aware Auto-Rotate-All
command. Windows users will find that the installer has
been streamlined and should prove more robust - thanks partly
to a workaround for an issue with the LEAP Motion Controller
support. For a detailed list of changes,
