I’m sorry for my late reply but I’m quite busy at the moment.
Thanks for your positive comments.
… but as I am working on ternary nanocrystals, I was wondering if it was possible to have a cluster with different atoms size and colors …
So far, one can only use one type of atom. If there are more than one type of atom, the number of possible configurations goes almost to infinity for large clusters. This is why it doesn’t make sense to introduce more than one type of atom. If there are several atom types, it depends on the user how these different atoms shall be positioned in a cluster. However …
… (and how to achieve it ? …
… in principle, one can create two clusters of same shape, structure and size (number of atoms), which differ in the atom type (e.g., Pt and Pd). Then, one deletes the atoms in one cluster, which are represented in the other one, and vice-versa. After this, one superimposes both structures. - All this asks for some manual (hard) hand work. :yes:
In fact, one has to …
… as it seems that the cluster is only one object were I cannot seperate object)
… work in the ‘Edit Mode’ and delete the specific vertices. Since you don’t know this I would highly suggest to learn something about:
- key words: Object Mode, Edit Mode, Blender
- key words: Dupliverts, Blender
The latter key words can be used to find some video tutorials in YouTube. The videos you can find there greatly explain everything in detail. Note that with the vertices, you can change the position of the atoms. If you want to have atoms with a different size, color, etc. separate them. This can be done with the button ‘Separate’ in the Atomic Blender Utilities panel.
As you might know, details about the Atomic Blender addons can be found on the Wiki pages:
