CrystalMaker

10.3.315 September 2018

Display and manipulate crystal structures.

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.

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

Note: Full changelist available here

Highlights:
  • Disordered Structure Support. This version supports SHELX "part" numbers and CIF "Disorder Groups". These indicate alternate versions of the structure and are displayed as separate structures in the Structures List
  • Show Molecular Unit. An important new command has been added to the Transform > Atom Range and the toolbar's Tidy button. This combines the Show Asymmetric Unit command with the Repair Molecular Fragments command. This allows a quick view of an intact molecular unit, without the distraction of the full unit cell contents
  • New Lighting Options with Multi-Touch Control. A fourth spotlight has been added, together with the option of backlighting. The latter allows for pleasing "halo" effects to be seen around sphere edges, when using rendered styles with specular reflection. Please see the new "Backlit Gold" example file in the Library Browser
  • Extended Error Propagation. Error values for bond distances are now displayed more prominently throughout the program, including in the Selection Inspector, various Log output commands - as well as the Distances & Angles file export
  • Improved Synchronize Command. The algorithm for determining the centre of each structure has been improved, which should make it easier to match different structures in a sequence
Miscellaneous Changes:
  • This version includes fixes for importing certain file formats, corrected gradient display options - and an expanded structures library
  • A new command, Edit Bond Radii has been added to the Bond Inspector's Actions menu. This acts as a shortcut, opening the Model Inspector and showing the popover for the Bond Cylinder radius controls
  • Atomic coordinates and bond distances are now displayed to greater precision in the Selection Inspector
  • The maximum radius of "thin" bond cylinders has been increased from 60% to 75% of the regular cylinder radius
  • Improved Show Molecular Cell algorithm. This now works for certain "edge case" structures (such as benzene) and provides a better display, focusing on molecules which are closest to the centre of the unit cell
  • Major speed improvements for the Repair Molecular Fragments command - which is itself used in a number of other commands
  • The "Auto Centre" menu command has been renamed as "Centre on Atoms" (to help distinguish it from the new "Centre on Bounding Box" command)
  • Constrained thermal ellipsoids are now loaded from SHELX files
  • Exported CIF and CMTX files now enforce unique site labels
  • Control-clicking in the Graphics pane now correctly shows a contextual menu
  • Moving the Arrow tool over an atom vector now correctly highlights the vector magnitude and orientation
  • Fixed an issue with massive thermal ellipsoids being shown for sites without any thermal ellipsoid data
  • The Distance Explorer no longer shows a Save File prompt when attempting to close its window
  • The Centre on Bounding Box command now takes the unit cell frame into account

Requirements for CrystalMaker

  • OS X 10.10.0 or later
