How to input crystal with more than 8 atoms in the unit cell
I'm trying to input a crystal structure than has 16 atoms per unit cell. Can this program handle more than 8 atoms in the unit cell?

Hi I tried to create CNT and it is possible to see the picture after creation. How to save that molecule co-ordinates into pdb file?
Textbook Unit Cells for Printing
Is there a way to get the textbook unit cell without the 3 colored atoms on the axes?
I'd like to be able to download a file that can be used in an assignment, for example, but...
CNT crystal rendering gives bucky ball
Open | Responses: 2
When I try to simulate CNT, I get bucky ball rendering.
I am trying to simulate ‘silicon’ crystal using ‘create your own crystal’ option. But I am getting an error that says ‘
Tried to simulate Bucky ball and CNT, it gives an import error for both

ABACUS—Introduction to Semiconductor Devices
When we hear the term semiconductor device, we may think first of the transistors in PCs or video game consoles, but transistors are the basic component in all of the electronic devices we use in...
How can I determine position of the atoms in the unit cell for a zincblende 110/111 crystal
distorted Miller plane views?
Open | Responses: 1
First of all, congratulations for the tool. I’m trying to have my students using it for visualizing crystal surfaces, and wanted to compare the fcc-(100) and bcc-(100). They should both...
I can’t see any images.
The program seems like it runs when I click simulate, but where I’m supposed to be seeing the image all I get is grey. I have access to all of the options on the right hand side.
Can you customize the basis?
Is there a way to create and visualize a crystal that isn’t already pre-packaged, i.e. use an existing lattice with a custom basis? I want to visualize the crystal structure shown...
how do i see the plane?
hii, how can I view the distance between the nearest-neighbour atoms in a bcc lattice?
how do we see other crystal orientations for instance for silicon, (557),?
Crystal Viewer Tool: First-Time User Guide
01 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Benjamin P Haley, Gerhard Klimeck
This first-time user guide is an introduction to the Crystal Viewer Tool lab. It provides basic definitions, including a definition of crystals. Any suggestions for changes and corrections are welcomed.
open surface problem
I would like to see a Hexagonal closed packed crystal but where is that? Do you have it?
Thank you for the tool.
In addition to the unit cells, can you also show larger chunks of the crystal
Open | Responses: 3
The tool could be dramatically improved if not only the unit cells were shown, but also multiple unit cells to form a larger chunk of the crystal.
It would also be great to be able to see...
Bravais lattice viewer shows very small atoms and very long bonds.
The tool could benefit in its visibility if the bonds were made smaller just like the fix that has happened with the graphene lattice, that is now showing properly.
