Support Forum / How to View only the Particles which I selected
« on: June 07, 2019, 07:06:28 AM »
Dear All,

Hello. This is Masato Koizumi from UCLA, and I am an OVITO user.

I am am a LAMMPS user, and when I view a system of polymer chains through OVITO, I wish to see only the monomers which I am interested in. The way I do this in OVITO is go to Expression Select and specify the ParticleIdentifier (which corresponds to the monomer ID number) which I would like to delete. Then I would go to Delete Selected Particles to delete the particles which I do not need so that I could view only the particles which I desire.


Instead of having to specify the particles which I would like to delete to view only the particles which I would like to see in the visual window, is there a way in OVITO to directly view only the Particles which I would like to see.

That is, is there a way in which I can specify ParticleIdentifier in the Expreession Select module and have OVITO output in the visual window only the particles which are specified in the Expression Select module and any ParticleIdentifier not specified in the Experssion Select module will not be viewed.


I checked the OVITO manual but did not come across a way to do this. Having to backcalculate the particles which I do not need may become cumbersome in some cases.

I would greatly appreciate for any suggestions.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Masato Koizumi
