Density/cube file formats you would like to see supported


Are there any file formats not currently supported you would like to see added, I think OpenDX is the one I would like to add better support for next.


I think we should try to support a wide range of “volumetric map” formats.

For example, PyMol supports:

  • Xplor maps “.xplor”
  • CCP4 maps “.ccp4”

For solid-state codes, there’s also:

VMD has quite an extensive list of formats: http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/plugins/molfile/


Just a clarification - should this topic be about “density” formats, or also chemical ones?


I was thinking of file support in general, but density formats were one I had noticed a need for in some recent discussions. I also wanted to test out the features, and see how things worked on here…
