Carbon Nanotube Builder

Hi all,

My group has developed a need for a carbon nanotube builder, and I’m
thinking of adding this functionality to Avogadro. I see that the
topic has been brought up before – does anyone have any existing code
tucked away that I could use as a starting point?

I don’t have the Avogadro code, but I do have the excellent TubeGen, which is BSD licensed:

Thanks Geoff – this is what we’ve been using as well, I’ll look into
incorporating this into Avogadro next week.

I’ve pushed a nanotube builder branch (using TubeGen) to gerrit:

Please try it out, and let me know if you break it.
