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.
