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,
What's New
Version 9.0.1:
  • New Rotate Submenu. New commands, added to the Transform menu, allow easy rotation of the model through 90° left, right, up, or down. Keyboard shortcuts (Cmd-Left Arrow, Cmd-Right Arrow, Cmd-Up Arrow, and Cmd-Down Arrow) facilitate rotation. (Note that these new commands supplement the existing Rotator Controls on the Tools palette, which allow the user to specify a precise angle.)
  • Faster multi-touch rotation and scaling. Using the trackpad to control rotation and scaling is now far more responsive in "Fast Rotation Mode".
  • Miscellaneous Changes. This version includes a few, minor, bug fixes, plus an improved method for licensing verification, designed to assign our Department or Campus licence holders.
    • Fixed a missing-icon issue with the "Site Browser" window toolbar button.
    • Fixed an issue with the Labels Inspector. Toggling the Scale labels with structure checkbox now immediately applies the change to the current structure.
    • Improving licensing search for Department and Campus licences, makes it easier for IT personnel to install the software for multiple users on the same machine. (Personnel should contact us directly for instructions.)

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.
[Version 6.2]
