Can a potential for a Simple Cubic lattice be added as an option?

Many basic undergraduate discussions and begin with Simple Cubic (SC) geometries, but outside of an unlikely mechanical test on Polonium, the main use cases fall along BCC and FCC geometries.

Would it be possible to add a SC geometry to Nanomaterial Mechanics Explorer, through a potential such as the one proposed by Rechtsman, Stillinger and Torquato in "Self-assembly of the simple cubic lattice with an isotropic potential," Physical Review E 74, 021404

    At this time we are only planning to add critical bug fixes to this tool.

    That said, this is a nice idea and I will keep it in mind for future tools.
