The coordinates of the structure you wish to view will load into CrystalMaker and display the view on the screen at the time when I saved the CrystalMaker file. In order to view the structure in the manner that you wish to see it there are a few essential commands.
The HAND in the Toolstrip.
This is the default option in the toolstrip, and when it is activated, clicking on the image and dragging it will rotate the image in the manner of a virtual trackball. To rotate the image in the plane of the screen, hold down the SHIFT key as you drag.
The MODEL Menu in the Menu Bar.
This gives access to the ability to change the type of view of the structure. The two most useful views are:-
Merely selecting Ball & Stick or Polyhedral from the model menu will switch the way your structure is displayed.
From the VIEW Menu in the Menu Bar, the Set Range... selector.
Selecting this option allows you specify the size of the chunk of structure you wish to view, in terms of the number of unit cell repeats (fractions are allowed) in x, y and z directions.
For detailed work a single unit cell may give the best view of the feature being sought.
Particularly for examining polyhedra or for a more subjective view of the structure to gain insight into its symmetry larger models are useful.
From the VIEW Menu in the Menu Bar, the Define Cluster... selector.
Selecting this option allows you place a specific atom at the centre of the model and include only atoms within a set distance of the specified atom. This is especially useful for examining coordination environments.
The above 4 commands should have you up and running in CrystalMaker in no time at all.
The program has many more sophisticated features. Try them out - you can't damage anything and it's an excellent way to learn about the structures of solids. Happy modelling!
