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 10.6.1:
  • Improved File Export Options. The File > Export Data submenu has been improved, both in terms of layout and command names. Submenus are now used to group related commands, e.g., a new Coordination Environments submenu gives access to the former Visible Coordination and Crystal Coordination commands; and a new PDB submenu give a choice of "molecule" or "crystal" export. The "HTML Structure Report" command has now been renamed as "HTML", and grouped with other external formats.
  • Improved XYZ Export. When choosing to export XYZ data, earlier versions of CrystalMaker X exported all structures loaded in the current document, regardless of visibility. Some users found this confusing, so we have now added the option to only export visible structures to an XYZ file. This option - and the "all structures" option are now accessed via a new File > Export Data > XYZ submenu.
  • Miscellaneous. This version includes workarounds for Apple bugs affecting M1 processors and "Big Sur"; we also include miscellaneous fixes and enhancements.
  • Workaround for Apple graphics bug on M1 processors: bonds were being displayed in red or black. This issue has been reported to Apple; in the meantime, we have devised a workaround.
  • When importing volumetric data from CUBE, Voxel or GRD formats, the user's preferred display style (as defined in the Preferences panel) is applied to the resulting visualizations.
  • Improved licensing agreement viewer (as accessed via the Licence button in the "About" window. This no longer requires users to explicitly "agree" or "disagree" when merely reviewing the content.
  • "Sliding sidebars" now animate correctly on macOS 11 "Big Sur".
  • Fixed a problem with exporting stereo-pair graphics at very-high resolution which resulted in an interleaved series of images instead of a seamless view.
  • Fixed an issue with the Discard Symmetry command; new atoms are now immediately generated corresponding to the increased number of sites in the asymmetric unit.
  • Workarounds for popup menus in Big Sur. Changed system behaviour led to titles being shown clipped.
  • Fixed a potential issue with entering blank values into the Supercell sheet data fields; zeroes are now used in these cases.
  • This version includes additional stability improvements and integrity checks to ensure safe operation.

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.
