Crystal Morphology Editor / Viewer

Version 1.5.0  (10/01/2018)

KrystalShaper is a newer crystal shape editing program.  It is not an upgrade of JCrystal, but a separate program, which is written in a different language and with a different feature set and file format, although a certain overlap in functionality and GUI design exists between both programs. Please read the comparison for more details on the differences between both programs.   

KrystalShaper draws crystal shapes for normal crystals and icosahedral quasicrystals. It is possible to export webpages in the HTML language, which use the provided Applet, so that crystal shapes can be viewed within a Java-enabled webbrowser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer. KrystalShaper itself has more rendering options than the applet. It might thus be used as an interface for the creation of interactive webpages.
