This utility is capable of modeling crystalline cellulose of different sizes and shapes, ranging from single chains to fully-sized crystals. A simple but very powerful graphical user interface allows generating and visualizing the desire crystalline structure. A seamless integration with LAMMPS simulation package gives full atomistic simulation capabilities with trajectory visualization (Jmol) and relevant thermodynamic information.
