How to import a crystal?

Dear All,
I was building some supercell using avogadro. I didnt know that there are
crystals available within avogadro… Please tell me how to import these
crystals using “build” button? I know I can directly open the cif file.
But is there any option from the avogadro menu??

Regards,

I’m not sure what you mean by the “build” button?

Crystals can be added by either opening cif, etc files, or copy/pasting a
VASP POSCAR-style representation into avogadro. The POSCAR format is
described here:

Hope this helps,
Dave
