CrystalMaker overview

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.

What’s new in version 10.8.1

Updated on Jan 06 2023

Smarter Auto Rotation
  • You can now automatically rotate your structure about an optimum rotation axis, thanks to a revised Cell option in the Spin popover.
  • The program chooses the best rotation axis, depending on the unit cell orientation. If a cell face normal is closest to the vertical, then that becomes the rotation axis (as in version 10.8). However, if one of the axial vectors is closest, it will be used, followed by one of the major lattice vectors, in the range –1 ≤ UVW ≤ +1.
  • A further refinement is that the rotation should now appear rock solid, even when using large angular increments.
Prismatic File Import
  • This version can import structural data from a "Prismatic" data file. Such files—used for simulation of high-resolution TEM images—comprise a rectangular unit cell with basic site information.
Miscellaneous
  • This version includes miscellaneous fixes and enhancements.
    • Detached popovers are now closed when switching to another window. This prevents potential confusion when another document window comes to the front and popovers from the previous window appear above.
    • Fixed a very-rare bug involving the "Notes" field in CrystalMaker text (CMTX) files.
    • Fixed an issue with the crystal structure of Anhydrite, as including in the "Sedimentary Minerals" group of the library browser.

$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.
