Getting started with a CrystalMaker document window: a guide to the interface essentials.
CrystalMaker X includes an integrated library of over 1200 structures, each with notes, metadata and animated previews. This tutorial shows how you you can use the Library Browser interface to browse or search structures.
Building a new crystal from scratch. Use the Crystal Editor to define sites, then generate bonds and polyhedra, change colours, model types.
Synchronizing and animating the structural behaviour of quartz. This tutorial illustrates how to create an animation and save it as a video file (QuickTime on Mac or AVI on Windows).
Placing a molecule onto a crystal surface, then combining the two into a supercell.
How to edit atomic radii, switch between element tables and configure your defaults.
Using the Distance Explorer to understand the range of inter-atomic distances in an unknown structure.
Exploring volumetric data: different representations and data ranges.
Loading, optimizing and measuring a molecular crystal.
Visualizing two oriented domains in the same window.
Adding multiple lattice planes to the same crystal.
Building massive polyhedra to simplify a complex framework structure.
Annotating your structure with atom labels, bond labels, textboxes, lines and arrows.
Simulating diffraction properties for a displayed crystal, via CrystalDiffract and SingleCrystal.
Selecting atoms or groups of atoms; isolating an area of interest in a complex structure.
Measurement tools in CrystalMaker X.
Rotating and scaling your structure using the Leap Motion 3D Controller (from 10.5, Windows only).
How to save or edit preferences using the Preferences Panel - and also via the Model and Rendering inspectors.
Visualizing a spherical cluster of atoms to show coordination environments, or to build a nanocrystal.
Building a new molecule by pointing-and-clicking with the mouse, then relaxing its structure.
Using the Cavity Finder to locate large cavities within a porous structure, and to display appropriately-sized translucent spheres at the centre of each cavity.
CrystalMaker provides two 3D viewing modes: Stereo Pair and Red/Blue Stereo. We explain how to use these and how to control the visual effects - including spectacular "out-of-the-screen" 3D!
CrystalMaker 10.4 introduces a new "Live Powder Diffraction Mode", designed to work seamlessly with CrystalDiffract 6.8 or later.
Learn the Top 10 new features in CrystalMaker 10.4
CrystalMaker Overview: a quick visual guide to some of the capabilities of this software.
PREVIEW: The new CrystalMaker 10.5 introduces a new "Live Intensity Mode" with SingleCrystal 4 (public beta)
Interpolation between two end-member structures to create a smooth animation
Visualizing a simulation trajectory: using the Playback Controls to rapidly "scrub" through a sequence, then synchronizing and exporting a video.
