Title: How can I scale the size of particle?
Post by: fabregas04 on December 07, 2017, 02:58:41 AM
I have several particle types in my dump file.
And they have different sizes but one of them is too large so that the others look like very tiny dust.
How can I change the other particles' size ??
If that is related to python script, I am really really a newbie to that so please tell me very specifically..

Hi,

OVITO uses the following information to determine the display size for individual particles:
I listed the settings in order of priority: If one is 0 or not defined, OVITO falls back to the next in the list when determining the effective display radius for a particle.

Thanks for the reply!

I think my question confuses you. I will clarify my problem more specifically.

My simulation box size is (5e3,3e3,3e3) and
Radii for particle types:
particle type 1 - 40
particle type 2 - 1.3
particle type 3 - 1.8
particle type 4 - 0.1

So in the display, particles which type is 2,3 and 4 look very small.
So I want to kind of zoom those particles without changing particle type 1.

Is it possible?

Sorry, I still don't understand the problem, I think.

Why can't you just go to the "Particle Types" panel and change the radii of particle types 2-4 to some larger values to make the corresponding particles appear bigger in the viewports?
