Version 1.4.0 (12/16/2016)
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.
