Editor Actions

The present section of the documentation contains explanations on how actions of different types can be performed on the crystal structure being currently inspected in the editor of our interface. Such actions might for example involve modifying the atoms, or changing the overall size and shape of the enclosing unit cell of the crystal structure.

The user should click on the visuals included at the end of each section below to view the animations for the corresponding action.

Add / Delete Atoms

This page explains how to add or remove atoms from the crystal structure.

Adjust Unit Cell Parameters

The procedure for modifying the lattice vectors defining the edges of the unit cell is outlined here.

Rotations, Translations and Scaling

This procedure should be followed in order to rotate, translate or scale crystal structure components in different directions and/or configurations.
