Dear Alexander,

Thank you for your email. Sorry for incorrect rotation matrix.

Now, I'm providing the normalized rotation matrix and the option "transform simulation cell" is selected. In the output it looks like the entire simulation box is rotated with respect to the X, Y and Z axis, but atom positions are not changed. I did minimization of the rotated structure and got exactly similar structure as the input structure was. It is expected that after rotation cell size along X, Y and Z should change, but it is not changed in the rotated system. Please find the attached figures of the initial and rotated structure. Am I missing anything or misunderstanding OVITO?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards,

Rajdeep
