Title: How to use compute bond length in Ovito 2.7.1 and dump values for specific bonds
Post by: spatil4 on June 10, 2019, 07:41:30 PM
Hello,

I am trying to compute bond lengths of specific bonds in Ovito.
As of now, I followed the following steps:
Create bonds for a uniform cutoff of 1.6 A.
Compute bond length.
But, in compute property I cannot find Length in the output property section.

Can someone help me with that?

Hello,

I'm wondering is there any particular reason you're using an outdated version of OVITO?
In OVITO 2.9 you could use the Compute bond length modifier for that.
https://ovito.org/manual/particles.modifiers.compute_bond_lengths.html (https://ovito.org/manual/particles.modifiers.compute_bond_lengths.html),
whereas in OVITO 3.0 the latter has been removed since it can be done with the Compute property modifier, as you were already trying to do.
