NanoCap - For Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Caps...
NanoCap is a Python framework for constructing the atomic coordinates of carbon fullerenes and nanotubes (open-ended, periodic or capped).
- A multi-platform desktop application
- Python libraries for custom scripts
- Built-in structure optimisation with sophisticated carbon forcefields
- A database of low energy structures
Provides real-time analysis and 3D visualisation.
Example scripts are bundled which demonstrate the use of the NanoCap libraries.
Enables the generation of low energy, physically sensible topologies.
A persistent local database provides a quick and easy method of viewing and exporting previously generated structures.
