CrystalMaker for Mac10.6.3

08 July 2021

Display and manipulate crystal structures.

What is CrystalMaker for Mac

CrystalMaker is an award-winning Mac program for building, displaying and manipulating all kinds of crystal and molecular structures.

CrystalMaker makes it easy to load structural data and generate photo-realistic images, with the option of "out-of-the-screen" 3D images. Models can be displayed immediately in ball-and-stick, thermal ellipsoid, space-filling, wire-frame, stick and polyhedral model types. All aspects of the model can be extensively customized, with a wide range of photo-realistic or stylized "line-art" representations. See our online gallery for 3D movies, rotating crystals, animations, and slideshows.

CrystalMaker is offered at a variety of price points for various license types. The published price is that of the standard license, typical of professional licenses. There are also educational and student licenses available for qualifying purchases. The pricing schema can be found here.

What's new in CrystalMaker

Version 10.6.3:
  • Visualize Disordered Sites. This major new feature has been added to the Transform menu, allowing visualization of substitutional disorder in crystals.
  • The new Transform > Visualize Disordered Sites command is active for crystal structures which include some degree of site disorder and/or vacancies. The command prompts for a multiplicity factor, then proceeds to generate a new structure - generally a supercell - with a random distribution of any disordered site occupants and/or vacancies.
  • This new command may be useful for teaching purposes, in revealing disordered distributions graphically (the larger the supercell, the better) - and potentially also in preparing input for modelling programs, which require specific atoms at specific positions in a unit cell.
  • As part of the new command, CrystalMaker calculates the minimum supercell size (multiplicity factor) required to show at least one atom of the least-common site occupant (occupants and vacancies with site fractions less than 0.001 are ignored). Note that, in general, higher multiplicities will give a closer approximation to the original formula, as well as a more "random" looking distribution.
  • For more information about using this new command, please refer to the updated Online Help, User's Guide, and Video Tutorials.
  • Faster Lattice Transformations. Major performance optimizations have been made to the Transform > Unit Cell commands (over 10x faster on our test systems).
  • Miscellaneous. This version includes miscellaneous fixes and enhancements.
  • Fixed a display issue on macOS "Big Sur" with Structures List thumbnail titles not centred correctly.
  • Changing the plot range now correctly updates the depth fading of atoms.

$750.00??? I'm stunned... I can't even afford the Expansion Pack to Diablo III.

Tim is absolutely right-on! This is far and away the best molecular illustration program on the market.

The 5-star rating given to this software by MacWorld is entirely justified. It looks gorgeous, it is remarkably intuitive and produces some structure effects that I have always wanted. I can download cif files from journal web sites and or use those I have from our own research and have a stunning picture in a remarkable short time. One MINOR complaint: when an incompatible file is used for input (e.g., a cif file on which a publisher has put in extraneous material on the front tend), the program hangs and a "force-quit" is necessary.
