how to draw vectors
« on: March 12, 2017, 02:30:37 PM »
I want to draw vectors using ovito.

The vectors demonstrate the displacement of atoms from t to t+dt.

Any suggestion  is appreciated.

Typically one uses the Displacement vectors modifier to let OVITO calculate the displacements of atoms.

After you have done that, you need to explicitly turn on the display of vectors as arrows. The visualization of vector arrows can be configured in this panel:
