CrystalMaker 7.0 released
CrystalMaker Software today announced , a new version of its crystal and molecular structures visualization program. CrystalMaker 7.0 is based around a flexible new high-performance engine, allowing virtually unlimited numbers of atoms and bonds to be displayed and manipulated on screen. It allows users to visualize and explore large protein molecules, solid-state catalysts and chemical sieves, and the output from computer simulations. Version 7 also offers new keyboard shortcuts, improved speed, reduced memory usage, and the ability to visualize "thermal ellipsoids": showing the extent of atomic vibrations, which can be displayed in many different photo-realistic, translucent, or stylized representations, and extensively customized. It is available staring at $430 (single-user education version).
