Changing radius of individual atoms

Hello Avogadro,

I am brand new to this wonderful software.

Can one change the radius of individual atoms-- either within Avogadro, or after export using another software ?

Thank you !

Sunny

Within avogadro, use the selection tool (F11) and right click on the
atom you want to modify. There should be a change radius option in the
menu that pops up.

Hope this helps,

Hello Mr Lonie,

Thank you so very much for writing back. Unfortunately, I don’t get that pop up. I am certain that I am inthe F11 selection tool. When I right click, I only see arrows in the horizontal and vertical direction which allow me to laterally move the entire molecule around on the background.

I am using the windows version…on Windows XP… the version is 1.0.3…downloaded just yesterday.

This is a marvelous software and so I hope to get the hang of it. I would love to do 2 things:

a) change the radius of individual atoms
b) be able to export a “movie file” (like an avi file) of the molecule while it is spinning using the “auto rotation tool”

If you can help with either of these two items, I would be quite grateful. I would like to publish an image using avogadro and cite it so that others will see it.

Best wishes,

Dave forgot that he’s using the development version, v1.1.

a) change the radius of individual atoms

No problem. Please try the pre-release for Windows:
http://avogadro.openmolecules.net/pettt/Avogadro-1.1.0-pettt.zip

This should have the menu that Dave mentioned.

b) be able to export a “movie file” (like an avi file) of the molecule while it is spinning using the “auto rotation tool”

So my best suggestion at the moment, is to use a screen capture software, like Jing (http://www.techsmith.com/jing-features.html)

Hope that helps,

Dear Geoff,

This worked PERFECTLY !!! …Thank you very much !!

I have already shared the name of this lovely software with a Professor of Physics at Boston College who does primary theoretical work at the interface of chemistry and physics…and with a really super-smart high school student from an exclusive private school in Washington DC who can’t wait to show this to her teacher.

For my part, I hope to use this to display the interdependence of important clinical relationships in children with malaria ! (if one turns off H-bonds and turns off valence restrictions, then the software offers a really intuitive and easy way to show networks).

Thank you so much for your help !

Dear Geoff,
Having had a quick play, the new release of Avogadro looks particularly exciting. I hope to introduce it to every student (and member of staff) here at the school of Pharmacy so they can more readily build, visualize and most importantly conformer search their molecule of interest.

Previous versions have been well received, especially by my five year old son!

I am sure that all us who use this software will join me in thanking you and the entire team for making a free resource available that has the ability to enthuse, educate and inspire. Please continue with this excellent open source project and I hope that it goes from strength to strength.

All the Best,
Fyaz
