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 10.6.0:
  • Universal Binary. CrystalMaker 10.6 runs natively on Apple Silicon! The same application also runs natively on older, Intel-based Macs: it is distributed as a "Universal Binary", to give you maximum flexibility - and performance.
  • Improved Discard Symmetry. The Transform > Discard Symmetry command now uses symmetry operators to convert anisotropic displacement parameters and errors in fractional coordinates - for all newly-created sites in the expanded asymmetric unit.
  • Improved "Big Sur" appearance. Extensive updates have been made to the user interface to ensure a consistent look under macOS 11.0 "Big Sur". This includes larger popup menus in the toolbar and narrower inspector lists. The Distance-, Vibration- and Symmetry Explorer windows now have an "integrated" toolbar design, with resized toolbar button icons. The Preferences Panel now shows a standard "Preferences" toolbar appearance. Sliders have been reset to ensure their thumbs aren't cropped.
  • Miscellaneous. This version includes miscellaneous enhancements and fixes.
  • The Structures List and Inspector are now animated so that they slide in- and out of view.
  • The View submenus now allow toggling of the Structures List and Inspector list.
  • The Tool Strip now shows a diffuse background on "Big Sur".
  • Improved update checking algorithm with more modern design and efficient operation.
  • Window playback control icons are now visible on "Big Sur".

$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.
