Including CAT in OVITO
« on: January 25, 2017, 02:13:05 PM »
Hello Dr. Alexander Stukowski, All.

It was good to add DXA into Ovito but indeed I need sometimes to use Crysta Analysis Tool (CAT) to detect planer defects such as stacking faults and twinning. I wonder if possible to add CAT into Ovito in the same way of DXA.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Iyad,

Thank you for your suggestion. Yes, in principle it is possible to integrate the more advanced structure identification algorithms of CAT into OVITO, but it would require several weeks of development work. I currently don't have the time to do it myself. Let's see, hopefully I can obtain more manpower to do this in the future.
