structural unit

Dear OVITO team,

Is it possible to draw the structural unit with OVITO (see the link)? If yes, could you give some instructions, please? Thanks.

Dear Xiaopu,

I was wondering if you were asking about drawing only or if your question aimed at recognizing these grain-boundary structural units you mentioned? We would be interested in knowing more about this.

In principle, you can use a Python script viewport layer to paint arbitrary text and graphics on top of images rendered in OVITO. It might be easier to do that in post-processing with your preferred drawing program, though.

Regards,

Hi Constanze,

Thanks for your reply. I am interested in recognizing/identifying these grain-boundary structural units. Seems that the hydrostatic stress at each atom is used to draw SU out (see page 290 in the linked book).
