Creating and Visualizing Double Bonds
« on: November 07, 2017, 06:18:56 AM »
Hi all,

Has anyone successfully created double bonds between atoms? If so, can you please share your Python script? If not, can we please have this feature added? That would be greatly appreciated!


P.S.: If you also know of a way to make bonds transparent, please let me know! Thanks!

I'm sorry, but OVITO currently doesn't support the display of double bonds. But let me take a note that you are interested in having this feature. Perhaps we can add this capability to OVITO in the future. How would you like the double bonds to look like? Can you perhaps post a picture (from another visualization software) here that shows your preferred style?

Semi-transparent bond rendering is also still missing. Hope I soon get more development personnel (or time for myself) to implement all these things in OVITO.

Best regards,
