Crystal Builder

Here’s a resource for some common crystals and builder code:

http://vimes.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/vimes/trunk/Vimes/CrystalBuilder.py?revision=38&content-type=text%2Fplain

It doesn’t have as many oxides that I’d like, but I like the way that it defines common lattice types like hcp, bcc, fcc, graphite, diamond, NaCl, CsCl, etc. That way if a user knows that their material is like NaCl, they can pick that as an option, put in the elements and dimensions and build.

What do you think?

I see what you’re saying now – that would be quite useful! I’ll try
to get something like that up and running in the next couple weeks,
but things are starting to get hectic in real life, so don’t hold me
to that timeframe :slight_smile:
