Modification for glass communauty


Dear All,
I would like to suggest some modifications for the future software updates. The community of amorphous materials (glasses) needs geometrical shapes (tetrahedra, octahedra, cubes, Icosahedron … see the picture) to represent the elementary structures of glassy structures.

For the moment with the software Avogadro one can only draw polygons.


These are all polygons - while there may be bugs with the implementation in Avogadro v1, all of these structures are possible with that display type as far as I know.

If you’d like to add comments, the appropriate feature request for Avogadro v2 is here:


Thank you very much I will check
