Loading big molecules

Hi all,

I’ve been using Avogadro for a while now, but very unfortunate that I can’t load in big molecules - I’m looking at a ~5000 atom system (perhaps this isn’t the intended purpose of the software, in which case I should submit this as a request to dev team).

Can Avogadro run using many processors, or is there a link to using it with command line? Would this solve my problem?

Cheers

Thanks for your message - this was the main reason for rewriting a lot of the program for Avogadro2, e.g. https://www.openchemistry.org/downloads/

While v2 is still in beta (since a variety of features haven’t yet been migrated over) speed of rendering and dealing with big systems is no issue anymore.
