We recently returned from our 29th MRS convention! This was the Fall National Exposition, held at the Hynes Convention Center, in Boston's genteel Back Bay District. the conference was vibrant and well attended, with three times the number of delegates compared to last year. It was great to meet so many existing users at the show - thank you for stopping by our booth. We return to MRS in the Spring, for the society's 50th birthday celebrations in San Francisco.

CrystalMaker 10.8

Major Update Features Smart Auto Rotation & Nano Spirals

26 September 2022

We are pleased to announce the release of a major new software update, CrystalMaker 10.8: our 43rd free update to this program in five years. This new version includes a plethora of usability enhancements - many requested by keen users - but also some critical new functionality.

  • Smart Auto Rotation Video allows you to define rotation axes relative to your structure rather than the screen. This means you can manually rotate a spinning structure - spinning about a specific unit cell direction, zone axis or chemical bond.

    The new rotation capabilities are built into a re-designed spin popover (click-and-hold the mouse on the toolbar's Spin button, or choose the new Transform > Spin > Adjust Spin menu command).

  • Nano Spirals. A redesigned Bend Selection interface lets you enter a radial offset between the start and end of a "bend", thereby defining a nano-scale spiral instead of a nano-tube.

  • New View Commands. New commands have been added to view the structure parallel to, or perpendicular to, an existing selection: atoms, bonds or a general selection.

  • Other Changes include calculation of the mean distance from a plane, faster "speedy sync", more-responsive popover display and revised three-body potentials.

CrystalMaker 10.8 is a free update for all licensed CrystalMaker X users and can be downloaded directly from the product download page.

Exhibition in Chicago (again)

American Chemical Society Fall Meeting 2022

6 September 2022

Following our earlier foray to "The Windy City" in March, we recently returned to Chicago for a second conference: the American Chemical Society's Fall National Exposition - held, once again, at the vast McCormick Place Convention Center (the world's biggest, apparently).

Unlike March's arctic blasts off Lake Michigan, August's weather was was warm and humid, with the occasional torrential downpour. The sunnier days were spent exhibiting, and it was a pleasure to meet so many new faces - in person. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth!
